The Munich Art Quarter is situated in the Maxvorstadt quarter, which is home to almost all of the city's important art museums and galleries. Visitors can admire masterpieces from every artistic period and take a journey through the history of art. The three Pinakothek galleries (Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne), together with the Glyptothek museum of Greek and Roman sculptures, the Collection of Antiquities, Lenbach House and the Schack Gallery, form a unique art complex covering works ranging from ancient times and through the late Middle Ages to the present day. In addition to the large museums, twelve galleries have opened their doors here over the years, making this a true paradise for art lovers.

The Glyptothek museum features ancient Greek and Roman sculptures. The Alte Pinakothek has a collection of European masterpieces dating from the 14th to 18th centuries, while the Neue Pinakothek provides an overview of 19th century European Art. The Pinakothek der Moderne, one of the largest museum buildings in Europe, houses four important collections of art, graphic art, architecture and design from the 20th and 21st centuries. The Lenbach House has an extensive collection ranging from the Gothic period through to contemporary art. The Brandhorst Museum presents works by classical modernists and artists from the second half of the 20th century.
