Munich, Antikensammlung

Opposite Munich's Glyptothek, you will find the Antikensammlung, which has a fine collection of pottery, a couple of bronze and iron weapons, and fascinating ancient jewelry. There are expositions in this building too. I visited “Strong Women”, which I believe ought to have been organized thirty years ago and is now hopelessly unzeitgemäß. To be honest, it was not the first time I was disappointed: on another occasion, I visited an unconvincing exhibition on the Trojan War. Still, if you find it intellectually unsatisfying, you will have to admit that the objects are at least aesthetically perfect, so in the end, you will certainly enjoy your visit.

This museum was visited in a/o 2009.
