4.2/5 based on 110 reviews on the web
Containing one of the largest collections of works by the German artist and pacifist Kathe Kollwitz, Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum displays more than 200 prints, drawings, posters, sculptures, and woodcuts. Opened in 1986, the museum traces its origins to art collector Hans Pels-Leusden, who bought many of the artist's works for decades and staged the first Kollwitz exhibit in 1965. Kollwitz lived in Berlin for more than 50 years and created some of her most memorable works there, including her celebrated self-portraits. The museum is inside a 19th-century villa that was partially destroyed during World War II. Be sure to explore the upper floor, which contains a 2 m (6.6 ft) statue of Kollwitz by sculptor Gustav Seitz.

  • Small museum, but of great interest. Käthe Kollwitz, woman sculptor, draughtsman, lived from the nineteenth to the twentieth century. His works are serious, sometimes dark; his sculptures, beautiful, can recall the art of Rodin, with whom she worked. It is interesting to make a turn in this Museum, which will give another view of Berlin, and "out" of the Inselmuseum. It is very easy to access, bus and U-Bahn, not far from the Zoo.

  • Perfect size gallery. Impressive collection, perfectly curated to journey through the artists life. Easy to find, plenty to see. 
  • For those who know and appreciate the works of Kathe Kollwitz this museum is a must see. The Museum includes several paintings which show how the artist was skilled at drawing. Also on display are sculptures that rappresenteno the last stage of artistic development of Kathe Kollwitz. Those who have studied drawing and sculpture will appreciate this museum where many intense and full of emotional intensity are displayed in chronological order.

  • More about the history and life of the artist than about exhibiting her work in a meaningful way. A good museum but not a must-see if you are in Berlin for a short time.
  • Sadly only few statues rest is about story of her life
  • A very small museum, to visit if you are a fan of Kathe's work.
  • A modest museum with lots of her work and info about her history.
  • A nice exposure for an artist to know. Bravo
