Staatliche Antikensammlungen

The Staatliche Antikensammlungen, or the State Collection of Antiques, is located in Munich. This museum houses the state of Bavaria’s collection of Roman, Greek, and Etruscan antique art pieces. Set up in 1848 by Ludwig I, King of Bavaria, the building was designed by Georg Friedrich Ziebland. The museum boasts an impressive collection of antique pieces—namely, vases belonging to King Ludwig, as well as pottery acquired from the excavation site of Vulci, and Etruscan bronze pieces excavated from Perugia. The museum showcases some splendid artwork by painters such as the Penthesilea Painter. The Roman Goblet made of network glass is one of the facility’s major attractions.

  • Admire the imposing architecture of the museum, a landmark of Munich, built in a Neo-Classical style with Corinthian pillars adorned by a beautifully sculptured top.
  • Take a look at King Ludwig’s wonderful collection of attic vases, as well as exquisite antique gold jewellery sourced from Caroline Murat's collection, and Greek terra-cotta items acquired from Italy.
  • Discover the beauty of antique Greek pottery, a collection that covers the time period from the Mycenaean era to the Hellenistic era—the Staatliche Antikensammlungen is world-famous for showcasing this period in Munich.

You can arrive in the city by taking a flight to the Munich Airport, which lies 28.5 kilometres from the city. From here, take a train of the Munich suburban railway lines S1 and S8 to reach the city in approximately 45 minutes. To get to Staatliche Antikensammlungen, avail the services of the public transport system of the city. The underground U2 serves the area. If you decide to travel by bus, board bus route 100 in order to access this one-of-a-kind destination.
