  • Temporary exhibition on Otto Dix (retrospective of his works between 1922 and 1933). Beautiful collection of works by Paul Klee. The french-speaking staff.

  • I honestly did not imagine that in Düsseldorf there was a museum so special! Already only the building of the K20 is sensational; In addition it houses contemporary art treasures from Paul Klee to Miró through Kandinsky. Take time to drink a cup of tea at the cute little bar of the Museum overlooking the piazza of the museum complex.

  • A magical experience for the whole family. Our children are 28 and 34 years old! They thought it was great! The room was full of sexual organs, however, skip white if you are quick to take offence, Alejandro children. Nasty.

  • Very good art collection. Upstairs is where the Picasso/Matisse etc is. Staff are very very annoying, as they follow you round and start getting annoyed if you look at a painting too close! I felt at some points I wasn't able to enjoy the art as they were putting me off! Apart from that absolutely amazing museum, worth the money for the art!!
  • Great art collection, is sadly under construction now. 09/2016 deserves 5 stars when fully operational, now it has Gursky and some other stuff put aside rather randomly. Staff slightly snobbish.
  • Went here last week and really enjoyed it. Some very interesting artwork to see. Was an excellent bit at the top where you got to walk around on netting (to explore life "in the clouds"). Certainly worth doing, but not if you are a bit afraid of heights... Really friendly and helpful staff too, not to forget a great cafe to end the visit on!
  • Great permanent collection and exhibitions.
  • Great Museum with many changing exhibitions and nice solid collection. Close to the old town and also for a detour in between to recommend. Who has fun at art in Düsseldorf should create for themselves the card of kind of, which gives free admission to many museums.
