The Glyptothek is one of Munich's finest museums and is famous for its unique atmosphere; the museum's court is one of the most popular meeting places for students in town throughout the warmer seasons. The museum was opened in 1830 to house the private sculpture collection King Ludwig I had brought. Heavily damaged in World War II the museum was reopened in 1972 for the Olympic Games as Bavaria's foremost museum of Greek and Roman sculptural art. The Attic kouroi, the Barberini faun and the Marbles from Aigina are among the most beautiful testimonies to the Greek civilisation.
