Travel Guide for Museums in Munich, Germany
The museums of this German city are sure to interest both artists and scientist. Hi, I'm Rebecca Brayton and welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be learning more about the cultural institutions and museums found in Munich.
Munich’s Kunstareal is the city’s art district and it houses many of the area’s museums. One grouping of museums found here are the Pinakothek Museums, each of which focuses on a different time period in Europian art. The Alte or “Old Pinakothek” features art from the 14th to the 18th centuries. This museum is also one of the world’s oldest galleries and is well respected as one of the most important art collections on the globe.
The art is separated by school is quite eclectic. Within its walls, visitors can witness the evolution of art from the middle ages until the Rococo Era. To continue that journey, all they must do is visit the nearby new Pinakothek which houses works from the 18th and 19th centuries. It is considered one of the most important museums of 19th century art and sculpture in the world.
Finally, as the name suggest, the Punakothek der Moderne is a modern art museum opened in 2002. One of Europe’s most valuable collections of art from the 20th century on, this museum is also quite popular with visitors. The building itself is open in awry featuring large windows and a large rotunda in its center that connects the four wings of the structure.
Also in the art district, the Lenbachhaus is a Tuscan style villa that was initially built as a residence. Sold to the city in 1924, it was four years later that the museum was opened to the public. Today, some of the rooms maintain their original design and so the building itself is a work of art.
Inside, the museum features art work from a variety of German artist including expressionist, France Mark. Though it is not found in the art district, the Deutsche Museum is another of Munich’s important museums. It is the city’s largest museum and the world’s largest museum dedicated to science and technology. Founded in 1903, it draws roughly a million and a half visitors each year. The museum’s main building is located on a small island on the east Isar River. It features exhibits on a variety of scientific topics including aerospace and telecommunications. Whether they are showcasing art that spends over half a millennium or some of the world’s most important technological advances, the museums of Munich are sure to be fascinating to all.
