Glyptothek Museum was originally constructed between 1816 and 1830 by command of the King of Bavaria, Ludwig 1. It was designed specifically to house a collection of Greek and Roman sculptures, so is very much in keeping with the appearance of Greek architecture of the time. There are typically several different events, guided tours and lectures going on in the facility. Generally the museum is open 10:00 am to 5:00pm on Tuesdays through Sundays, and there is a very modest admission fee.
Even the outside of this building is adorned with 18 original Greek and Roman sculptures, however the inside is a true treasure, with artwork dating back to 700 BC. This is a must see attraction when visiting Munich.
