King Ludwig I, who is nearly completely responsible for all things great in Munich, built this museum in 1830 to house all of the 'souvenirs' that he pillaged while on holiday abroad. A temple in its own right, the museum is home to fantastic busts, statues, sarcophagi and tombstones. Of particular note are the reclining Satyr with all of his important parts intact, the fantastic Roman floor mosaic (now on the wall) and the saucy erotic sculpture hidden away in a little niche as not to offend. You can also admire the pieces from the indoor/outdoor café.
