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.

Look great from outside. It little complicated to come there because no Ubahn goes from Marienplaz but you can take a bus or go on foot.

As usual in most museums, they discourage flash and if you're taking pics of anything you shouldn't be, there will be somebody there to remind you. We had no problem taking all the pics we wanted.
