The Pinakothek der Moderne was opened to the public in 2002 and is the third Pinakothek.   It focuses on modern art from the 20th century and later.  This includes artwork as well as design, graphics, and architecture.  Some of the artists on display include Picasso, Dali, Magritte, Warhol, and Wall.  It is considered to be one of the most important modern art museums in Europe and covers the major 20th century art movements.

The Neue (New) Pinakothek (art gallery) was built in 1981 and is dedicated to late 18th to early 20th century art.  It replaced a namesake museum that lasted from 1853 until its destruction during World War II.  Included is a strong (one of the best in the world) collection of 19th century German works, many of which came from the private collection of King Ludwig.  International masters such as Goya, Gainsborough, van Gogh, Rodin, and the Impressionists are also featured.  There are over 400 paintings on display at any given time from the Bavarian State Paintings Collection.

The Neue Pinakothek contains a nice array of 18th to early 20th century European art and sculpture. A significant part of the collection is from German artists who I wasn't as interested in (still of a high quality), but there is a good balance from other areas of Europe too. My favourites were the Van Goghs and Monet's Bridge at Argenteuil.

Cohesive selection of German, American, Spanish, modern art. Had an interesting selection of classic cars, motorcycles, and furniture on display.

Watch out for the picture "Die Theresienwiese mit der Bavaria bei Abendlicht" by Bavarian Painter Adolf Lier. The light in this painting is incomparable.
