  • This museum had quite a collection of Picassos and Klees, as well as some Cezannes and Matisses. For €10 it is worth it if you like this period. 
  • Many famous sculptors and artists are represented here. Never realized how prolific Picasso was, there was a lot of his works. The sculptor Giacometti was represented with several interesting sculptures. Paintings and sculptures were exhibited. Not so much people but you could go in peace. Many small rooms and on several floors, the elevator is located.

  • In order to showcase that in 1914, Berlin-born art dealer, Heinz Berggruen collection are transferred to the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation opened in 1996.

  • I return to this small museum every time I visit Berlin. This time I got very lucky because my visit coincided with its grand re-opening after a renovation--with free entrance. The artwork of Paul Klee is displayed in small rooms in the top two floors. Beautiful! Matisse's work is displayed the next level, followed by two floors with Picasso. One room has a special exhibit of Cézanne. The walls are white. They installed special alarms the make a loud beeping sound when a visitor stands too close to the artworks. With so many small rooms, it would not be financially feasible to have a guard in every room, besides it was so busy on opening day, there wasn't any room for a guard! No free wifi, but free WC! There was a food truck in the courtyard where you could buy coffee, but it was too busy. Don't be tempted like we were to have coffee across the street at the Art museum, the cappuccino was terrible.
  • Good if you are a fan of modern art but not for me😌
  • Nice and interesting collection of Picasso. Feel inspired!
  • great little museum!
  • Far away from the museum island, this place is a must for me. If you like Picasso you will find more than 100 works, included some masterpieces. His small size allows you to see all the collection in a short time. When you buy the ticket, they offer you a more expansive ticket including entrance to two other museums, but if I remember good, it didn't worth the price.
