Museums for 1€? Yes, please!

You have a desire for art and culture, but at the end of the money is still too much month left? Then we have something for you! In Munich, some museums open their doors on Sundays for only 1€ admission! And the best thing is: there are no conditions attached. So you don't need a student ID or a senior citizen pass to get this offer! Unfortunately, not all museums in the city are participating, but in the following houses you can get in for only 1€:

Alte Pinakothek

The Alte Pinakothek displays art from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque and the Rococo. Paintings by European artists from the 14th to 17th centuries are on display in the Alte Pinakothek, for example by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt, da Vinci or Raphael - and of course many, many more.

Pinakothek der Moderne

Actually, the Pinakothek der Moderne is not one museum, but four museums under one roof. For art there's the "Sammlung Moderne Kunst", for graphics the "Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München", for architecture the "Architekturmuseum der Technischen Universität München" and for design the "Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum". Here you can discover everything from classical modernism to contemporary art.

Museum Fünf Kontinente

The ethnological museum Five Continents displays art, photographs, everyday and ritual objects and much more from peoples all over the world. There are permanent exhibitions for Africa, the Orient, North America, South America, Oceania, and Myanmar, and also ever-changing special exhibitions on individual topics.

Ägyptisches Museum

If you want to dive into the time of the pharaohs and pyramids, the "State Museum of Egyptian Art" is the right place for you. In 13 rooms you can travel through about 5,000 years of Egyptian history and get to know the art and culture in more detail.

Bayerisches Nationalmuseum

Even if the name doesn't sound like it, the Bavarian National Museum shows art, sculptures and handicrafts not only from Bavaria, but from all over Europe. In the upper rooms you can discover many things from the early Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century. The crib exhibition in the basement is especially famous - here you can see Christmas cribs from the last centuries from Germany, Austria and Italy.

Staatliche Münzsammlung

In the Munich Residence you can immerse yourself in the world of money. In addition to classic coins, you will discover the development of banknotes, medals and coin cabinets, but also money from the time before coins and cut stones of the Babylonians and Egyptians.

Sammlung Schack

If you mainly want to see paintings, the Schack Collection might be the right place for you. Here you can see paintings by German artists, mainly from the 19th century. There are mainly history paintings and landscape paintings on display, including works by Anselm Feuerbach, Moritz von Schwind and Franz von Lenbach.

Museum Brandhorst

If you are a fan of modern art, take a look at the Museum Brandhorst. Here the focus is on modern and contemporary art, especially works from 1945 onwards. If you are a fan of Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys or Damien Hirst or want to become one, this is the right place for you.

Sudetendeutsches Museum

For many centuries, German-speaking populations lived in Bohemia, Moravia and Sudeten Silesia. Today, these regions are part of the Czech Republic. If you want to learn more about the culture, history and coexistence of the different groups there, a visit to the Sudeten German Museum is just right for you!


The Glyptothek knows only one focus: antique statues. In the exhibition halls, the Greek and Roman statues are shown to their best advantage. The craftsmanship of the sculptors is definitely impressive and worth seeing!

Staatliche Antikensammlung

The State Collection of Antiquities is also located on Königsplatz. Objects of everyday life as well as art objects let you immerse yourself in the time of the ancient Greeks, Etruscans and Romans, i.e. from about 3,000 BC to about 500 AD.
