Eventhough the major part was undergoing reconstruction when we visited, I was amazed by the brilliant works of my favorite authors, such as Rubens or Teniers.

Relaxing morning walking around the art museum. Worth a visit to see some of the old masters. Lockers are available for coats and handbags.

This museum houses some hugely important works of European painting. At present, many of them are in storage while renovations are completed, which is expected to be sometime in late 2018, tho no definite date has been announced. So it is possible to see what's...More

While the collection was fairly impressive, it was not very large, Heavy concentration on religious works and large tapestries. Reasonable entry price. The museum itself was like a cavern and not crowded at all on a Saturday. I assume everyone was hanging out and drinking...More

Many great pictures from old masters for an incredibly cheap entry fee of 4,- but not as big as other collections

On Sundays, the ticket costs just 1€. It is worth the visit. Museum attendants are not so professional (laughing and chatting with each other, out of place comments).

It was a great experience during which we gained a lot of knowledge. We had booked a tour guide via the main desk of the Pinakothek, which definitely made our visit worth.

If you love classic old masters you will enjoy this gallery.Unfortunately when we visited the museum was undergoing renovation and we saw just a small portion of the collection. There was an impressive collection of Rubens.

Amazing collection of masterpieces by famous painters. Works of Holy Mother and Child by Leonard da Vinci and Rafaelo Santi are exhibited side by side. Lembrandt's 5-pieces of Christ's episodes are right next to Ruben's overwhelming masterpieces. Quite a surprise to find my favorite Claude...More

We arrived on a weekday just at the 10 am opening and there was no line. Due perhaps to the renovations and the smaller collection on view, there did not seem to be very many people, even by noon.

For an art geek and somewhat obsessive must-see-everything type person, how much time should I allot to Alte Pinakothek in its current state of renovation? As a ball park, if I were to view/listen to everything on an audio-guide, how long would it take? Also, a general sense of scale would be great. Is it like the Louvre, which using my approach takes at least 3 days to see the whole thing satisfactorily (one day per wing) or is it more like the Art Institute of Chicago, which I was able to see pretty much everything in 1.5 days? Other museums that can be used as a point of reference are the Met in NY, the National Gallery in Washington D.C., the National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Florence or Museo el Prado in Madrid. (I am trying to list the larger, encyclopedic museums since that is what I understand Alte Pinakothek to be). Currently, I have a day allotted to Alte Pinakothek, a day allotted to Neue Pinakothek, and a half day allotted to Pinakothek der moderne (purely based on my lesser interest in contemporary art). Again, I am not interested in how much time it would take a typical traveler to see the museum - I see 3 hours cited as a good amount of time, but I would spend 3 hours in small museums like the Frick in NY, so I can't imagine 3 hours would be anywhere enough time for me to see Alte Pinakothek. I will be visiting in September 2016. I am finding the museum's website unhelpful in terms of pinpointing what is closed and what is open or even a sense of proportion (half closed? 1/3 closed?) Any input would be greatly appreciated!
