Numerous museums in munich are not only the property of Bavaria and Germany, but also throughout Europe and attract the attention of tourists around the world.
Many museums in munich were founded hundreds of years ago, back in the Renaissance. Such is the world-famous Old Pinakothek of Munich - one of the largest art galleries in the world, comparable in richness to the collection only with the Louvre and the Hermitage. Now in the 19 halls of the gallery there are about 700 paintings, and this is not counting the exhibits contained in the museum's storehouse.
Another very popular museum in Munich is the Pinakothek of modern times. This gallery was opened in 2002 and, as its name implies, is dedicated to the art of the XX-XXI centuries.
Another famous city museum is the Bavarian National Museum. He exhibits collections representing Bavarian art from the Middle Ages to the present day. It is here that the famous Seeon Madonna is exhibited, a mass of porcelain and ivory products, stunning watch collections, and much more are presented.
The German Museum of the Achievements of Natural Sciences and Technology presents about 28 thousand exhibits from all branches of science. It is the world's largest science and technology museum.
