The contents of this small museum are beautifully displayed,and there is worthwhile information about the sculptures in English.

The Glyptothek is a must see, quite near Munich main railway station. The roman/greek exhibits are well presented and of great interest. This museum is a must see for history lovers. Tip Sunday entrance is only 1 euro.
