A visit to the museum was not on my agenda but since it was included in my entry ticket to the Glyptothek, on the opposite side of Konigsplatz, I paid it a visit. This museum houses the state collection of antiquities of the Greeks, Etruscans...More

This museum holds such beautiful Etruscan art along with Roman and Greek treasures. It is amazing how much they have. Be sure to rent the audio guide as it includes a tablet with more pictures and great information. Well worth the 4 Euros. Both museums...More
