The museum was founded in the mid 19th century by the Bavarian King Ludwig I and is now claimed to be the most important museum of art of the 19th century in the world. The collection basically starts off where the Alte Pinakothek ends.
The museum offers an overview of European art from classicism to art nouveau, and is full of famous works from artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Gustav Klimt and Monet.
Be aware that the museum is closed on Tuesdays, and the Alte Pinakothek is closed on Mondays, so if you wish to visit both on the same day, try to avoid it during this time.
Like many museums in Munich, the entrance on Sunday is cheaper than other days in the week.
Neue Pinakothek Reviews
For years I've seen the classic Van Gogh paintings of sunflowers, so to get to see these up close and for real was one of the highlights of our European tour. It's something you have to be able to say you've seen. (This article has been translated from German)
