  • I will not evaluate the museum, but the front part of it: not worth it, I wasted my time going in there to take photos. Although, I would get a ticket and go inside if I had more time to spend there.  more »
  • Otto Dix is presented in this exhibition to be an excellent artist with a turbulent life. He fought in the First World War in the trenches on the German side and was very unable to forget this ever. H...  more »
  • Both the permanent collection and the temporary Otto Dix exhibition are phenomenal. This is the only place in the world to see two of Kandinsky's compositions (IV and X) under one roof but that's only...  more »

  • A very impressive and versatile collection of Paul Klee, plenty of Picasso, several Magrittes, Dalis and many other thought provoking masters. It was a satisfying afternoon.
  • 28/07/2016 I visited this museum to spend a relaxing mid-summer afternoon. The exhibition of Andreas Gursky photos was well organised and interesting, even if there weren't a lot of pictures. The section dedicated to '900 paintings was nice but not so exciting, there aren't famous artworks even if the artists are well known. The highlight of the visit was the temporary exhibition "1887-2058, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster" which is very strange and upsetting, like art should be. I enjoyed every spot of this section, every artwork, even if sometimes I didn't understand everything. It was so particular, I've been thinking about it for days after the visit.
  • Basically a modern art museum. Does have a gallery with more traditional art work in it, but expect most of the stuff to be more contemporary in nature.
  • Unusual layout could miss artwork if not aware. Some of the major contemporary Art Photography Artists here. Just don't get too close to the work...
  • 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!!
