State Collections of Antiques, Munich

Ludwig I and his architect Leo von Klenze built a large square, in classical style, including the Antikensammlung.

Ludwig I and his architect Leo von Klenze built a large square, in classical style, including the Antikensammlung. Formerly an exhibition venue (for the first 60-plus years of its life), then a museum of modern art, the Antikensammlung swung back in the exact opposite direction by the 1960s. At that time, the building was restored to hold Ludwig I's vast collection of Greek and Roman antiquities. It has the largest Greek and Etruscan vase collection in the world after the British Museum and the Louvre. Facing the classical arch (''Propyläen''), the Antikensammlung is on the left and the Glyptothek is on the right.
