Museum cafés

For reasons of hygiene and health protection, both museum cafés will remain closed.

A particular attraction is the museum café in the inner courtyard and in Hall VIII of the Glyptothek. Here you can enjoy what is probably the best Italian coffee in Munich in a Mediterranean ambience. Or you can taste the renowned Bavarian Museum Wine from Franconia.

There is also a nice and stylish museum café inside the State Collections of Antiquities which offers snacks and delicious cakes. Two inner courtyards invite you to stay longer.

The State Collections of Antiquities and the Glyptothek endeavour to make visits to the museums as comfortable and accessible as possible for all visitors. For people with limited physical mobility we offer light portable folding chairs in both museums. If you have any questions on accessibility before your visit, please feel free to contact us (; Tel. 089-289 27502).

And please do speak to our staff.

Here you find additional information on each of the two museums:


Barrier-free access at the northern entrance.

All exhibition rooms are freely accessible. The inner courtyard can be accessed from the café with a wheelchair lift.

Light, portable folding chairs are available.

The disabled toilet, luggage lockers and the cloakroom are located next to the pay desk.

Visitors may be accompanied by a guide dog or a seizure response dog if these are identified as such. A tactile map is available in the foyer for visitors who are blind or have a visual impairment. For blind visitors there is the possibility of experiencing the sculptures manually wearing gloves. Gloves are available at the pay desk.

Collections of Antiquities

We regret that the collection of antique minor arts that is distributed across three floors is not barrier-free. This applies both to the access to the building via the steps at the main entrance and to the inside infrastructure with the three exhibition levels. Neither are the toilets barrier-free. These shortcomings can only be remedied within the scope of a complete renovation, which we are emphatically campaigning for.
