The State Collections of Antiquities in Munich – a Museum of International Renown

 

Experience Greeks, Etruscans and Romans first hand in the Collections of Antiquities on Königsplatz. Works of art and everyday objects from ancient times made of quite diverse materials such as ceramic, metal and stone allow visitors to immerse themselves in the ancient world.

The time scale begins with the Cycladic Culture of the Aegean region in the 3rd century BC and leads up into the Late Antiquity in the 5th century AD. Passionate about Classical antiquity, the Bavarian King Ludwig I. (1786-1868) had even as Crown Prince begun to expand the collection of the dynasty. He instructed his art dealer in Rome to purchase only works of outstanding quality, for he knew that his collection would never be able to vie in the sheer number of items with the museums in Rome, Paris or London. So the Collections of Antiquities are quite distinct in all fields due to a wealth of unique, rare objects of highest quality.

Together with a visit to the Glyptothek and the Königsplatz this results not only in the impression of a Gesamtkunstwerk but also in a unique experience of art and culture.
