The Glyptothek was created in 1816 by the then Crown Prince Ludwig I to house precious antiques and sculptures from the ancient art world. The museum is comprised of mainly Greek and Roman artefacts and art works, such as the Aeginets from the world famous Aphaia Temple.

The museum itself was built entirely out of marble in the classical Greek style which reflects its contents.

It is possible to do a tour of the museum on Thursdays at 6pm, however this tour is only conducted in German.

The Glyptothek is located on Königsplatz, near Munich's other antique museum, the Staatliche Antikensammlungen (State Antique Collection). Keep in mind that the museum is closed on Mondays.
