Neue Pinakothek


European Painting and Sculpture of the 18th and 19th Centuries

The Neue Pinakothek offers an overview of European art from classicism to art nouveau. Its founder was King Ludwig I of Bavaria, who opened the museum in 1853 and had it built to house his privately financed collection of works by contemporary artists. Following the destruction of the museum during the Second World War and temporary exhibition of the collection in the Haus der Kunst, a new building, designed by architect Alexander von Branca, was opened in 1981. Thanks to expansion of the collection through endowments and purchases, the Neue Pinakothek is now the most important museum of art of the nineteenth century in the world.

Permanent Collection

The Neue Pinakothek offers an overview of European art from classicism to art nouveau. Temporary exhibitions offer an additional outlook on the 19th century.

Art appreciation of the Pinakothek museums ‚Äď
An active encounter with artworks

The department responsible for Visitor Services and Art Appreciation devises and organises guided theme tours, discussions on art, workshops and educational programmes designed to meet the interests of specific groups. In addition to these activities, we arrange museum tours for private groups and publish information.
The Pinakothek museums have their own special location for art appreciation: It is the Palais Pinakothek, which is situated at number 4 in the T√ľrkenstra√üe. This 3-storey building has rooms for workshops, seminars and other venues open to adults, children, young people and groups from social institutions.
