The Glyptothek in Munich is a compilation of masterpieces from ancient times, a special collection dedicated to sculptures carved from marble in ancient in Greece and Rome. Some even say it’s the world’s most beautiful museum of its kind. What makes the Munich Glyptothek so special is not only its collection, but also that statues are presented in an outstandingly beautiful architecture reminiscent of Roman thermal baths. The antiquities are presented in front of brick walls and in broad daylight provided by large floor-to-ceiling windows and glass domes. One of the most impressive treasures is the so called Aeginetans.
