  • The museum is quite big, we spent a whole day in there. The adult ticket is expensive - 14€, but the student ticket is much cheaper - 7€. Totally worth the visit! Really great exhibition of Adrian Piper where you can sign and print your 'contract' that you 'always mean what you say' and 2 others. If you really like contemporary art and interact with it, it is a perfect place! Also, the staff forbid us to drink water inside, so be prepared - no drinks allowed.
  • This is an absolutely mammoth contemporary art space. I'd check before you go to make sure you appreciate some of the artists -- there was a focus on the 70s and minimalism when I was there -- but with the size of the place and a few shows going on simultaneously there should be something for everyone. I absolutely loved Bruce Nauman's haunting permanent installation at the faaaar end of the building so don't miss that (though maybe pack a lunch for the walk).
  • such a great place, i have been there each of the three times i have visited Berlin. always has great exhibitions, such a cool place and architecture. maybe i am a little bias because i find Berlin amazing but its still a great place to visit.
  • Such CRABBY staff. Frau selling the tickets didn't smile at me. Herr by the entrance didn't let me in to see the second exhibition despite 10 minutes remaining to the end of the opening time. And another one kicked me out of the bookstore. I wanted to spend my money there! Last but not least - be warned, art lovers, they RECYCLE art pieces! I've been seeing the same stuff over and over again (Beuys, seriously, who needs to see those ugly things more than once) as they just change the exhibition title.
  • Delightful exhibition in a lovely, well-lit and well-managed environment. If you are into modern art, you have to go visit. Also had a great lunch at the cafe next door. Quite yummy!
