Glyptothek Museum

Glyptothek Museum, Germany

The Glyptothek is Munich's oldest public museum and the only museum in the world that is solely dedicated to ancient sculpture. The name Glyptothek is a modern word invented from the combination of the Greek words glyphein 'to sculpture' and theke 'repository', meaning therefore a storage place for sculptures. Here Greek and Roman marble statues are presented, free-standing, under naked brick walls and vaulted ceilings.
