With the old comes the new, and so Munich added the Pinakothek der Moderne (Modern Picture Gallery) to the older museums centered in the Museum district. The sleek glass and concrete museum, finished in 2002, holds a number of exhibits related to modern art, architecture and design, including the Bavarian State collection of graphic art and the Technical University's architectural museum. Most travelers said they appreciated the wide variety of modern art, though some commented the entry fee was a little steep.

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays until 8 p.m. Admission costs 10 euros (less than $12) for adults and is free for children 17 and younger. You'll find the Pinakothek der Moderne by hopping off the U-bahn at Königsplatz. The Nos. 27 and 28 trams also stop nearby. For additional information, visit the museum's website
