- Ludwig I's love of ancient Greece was almost infinite: in 1816, the king ordered his architect Leo von Klenze to build a temple to house his most beautiful antiques. This was to be the first museum in the country dedicated entirely to ancient art. The heart of the collection is made up of the Aeginets, the tympanum figures from the world famous Aphaia Temple. Not less remarkable: the Sleeping Faun and the Roman busts. In the summer, the atrium hosts theatrical productions.
