If you are a fan of classical art its well worth a visit. It was a great place to escape the heat and the streets and just sit and look at beautiful things.

Glyptothek Munich is situated near Konigsplatz, build in neoclassical style, and houses State Collection Greek and Roman Antiquities. It's the city's oldest public museum - started from the time of King Ludwig I. I recommend this museum for the lovers of the classical art.

You have to be interested in antique sculpture to go. It is a traditionalö museum, but some pieces are exceptional.

The Glyptothek is a must see, quite near Munich main railway station. The roman/greek exhibits are well presented and of great interest. This museum is a must see for history lovers. Tip Sunday entrance is only 1 euro.

I spent 2 hours here during a multi-museum day in Munich. If Classical sculpture is your thing this is the place. The current focus is on the sculpture of busts.

As usual in most museums, they discourage flash and if you're taking pics of anything you shouldn't be, there will be somebody there to remind you. We had no problem taking all the pics we wanted.
