  • The architecture and the building structure should be explained by a guided tour. Be sure ask dates before visiting! If you expect a classic Museum, will be disappointed under certain circumstances. The accessible rooms and the exhibition in the basement are in development, and here is still much to do. The master houses should be viewed with and know the staff there much to tell. The Museum Shop (for maybe disappointed, have enjoyed no leadership) offers plenty of products still produced (also high quality) the master and really lots of memorabilia seekers, art on the building and the apartment, even in the kitchen (who wunderts?).

  • For €7,50 you get amazingly little offered admission. All work areas have been closed off, the exhibition is under renovation and also not accessible. Remain essentially empty corridors (where you don't photograph), 2 smaller rooms next to the gift shop and the permanent exhibition in the basement. For fans.

  • Who is in Dessau, must have seen the Bauhaus! But, really understand it can only, when you book a guided tour... With groups, the approximately one-hour tour is simply sensational. Especially as things to see and hear, gets that one otherwise escape (E.g. the study of Walter Gropius)... History, culture, inspiration, innovation... the Bauhaus has more facets than can... be seen from the outside

  • Great place you have to visit in your life.
  • A must see! Be sure to get a guided tour to experience how lectures, student living and the directors room were.
  • If you like or are interested in Bauhaus, you NEED to see this. Good exhibit and great gift shop.
  • Must see for all architecture lovers. Beautiful buildings.
  • Intersting experience being there and sleeping in the same room where used to sleep big names of Bauhaus.
