Opened in 1846, the state art gallery has maintained most of its original works of the collection since it’s year of inception. Opened with a motive to serve as an agent between the past, present and future, it not only preserves the legends of several centuries but also aims at modern historic collection and it’s perpetuation and expansion. The state gallery is spread over three historical buildings besides the Botanical garden. The main building and the palace Orangerie exhibit diverse art paintings from different periods through the impressionist/Expressionist period to the modern art abstract. The State gallery besides being home to one of the greatest German art collection, boasts of impressive architecture as well and has a dedicated section for art collections for adolescents and children. Highlights and must sees include:
- The Copperplate cabinet
- Youth Gallery
The Copperplate Cabinet is one of the oldest graphical art collections in Europe, and contains more than 90,000 prints. The State art gallery has one of the largest public museum libraries of southern Germany which has an impressive collection of over 1,50,000 volumes.

Unfortunately everything is only available in German. There are no translations, no English or French materials, the personnel was also speaking only German. I was disappointed with the overall experience, as my expectations from a well-known Art Museum are quite different.
Nice building and gardens. Even is said in the comments English is offered in guided tours, this is NOT true. Only German is offered. Some painting descriptions are also in French, even Spanish paintings, whats the point of French and not Spanish in this case or even English for all? We still had to pay 4 eur when the AC did not work and part of the exhibition was also not open. These details makes a museum a name and position. Colors exhibition is just a kids playground, nothing is set to be shown.
Great collection and a beautiful building, but NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! With 35°C outside it is a suicide to visit the gallery in summer. Such a shame in the 21st century. I also wonder if it also bad for the paintings inside...
Beautiful grounds and artwork collections. Being American, I did not know or had not studied many of the artists here...German, Dutch, Spanish. Very lovely experience.
It is worth the visit. Enjoy it.
