  • There are a number of multimedia exhibits (e.g. a film projecting from a sawed open Volvo) and photo exhibits. The space is large and airy feeling with a nice bookshop. It's a little like the new Whit...  more »

  • Very good taste of the Museum is not even a mediocre for best art gallery in Berlin. And the staff very professional and friendly, ask was a student ticket. Very rigid inflexible old Museum on Museum Island, far less than the Berlin Gallery. Watch not many people, cultural center exhibition upstairs. All in all highly recommended!

  • I went for the photography exhibition and loved the temporary exhibits. The upstairs collection was their permanent instalments while downstairs was temporary. I definitely recommend checking what's on before you go. Lots of great art books on sale at the front. They will probably ask you to check your bag but it's free! Great notes about each work before the curation and even some printouts. Always in German and English which is great for some tourists. I would recommend about 1.5 hours if you want a good self tour of the gallery. 2 hours if you read everything and take your time!
  • Really great art! Sometimes it is a great relief to just see more recent art. I am not saying one is better than the other, but it can be refreshing. The exhibits we're all very engaging.
  • Easily the best gallery I visited in Berlin. Humble but groundbreaking. I heard it was most favourited by the local arts scene and for good reasons. Upstairs collection is an impressive chronological walkthrough of Berlin's art revolutions but its the installations and rotating exhibitions downstairs that take the cake. Toilets and free storage. Clean fresh and sexy through and through
  • Very well curated place, with loads of room for a variety of pieces. When we went there it seemed like they tried to contraste modern art pieces on the bottom floor with traditional art on the top floor. The change of perspective was an interesting combination and I look forward to returning here!
  • Very creepy installations, nothing beautiful or inspiring. Most of photos are not interesting, entry doesn't worth 10 Euro.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
