Haus der Kunst, Munich
(4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
A venue for temporary and travelling contemporary art exhibitions, Haus der Kunst was originally built under the Nazi regime as the House of German Art--thus, the swastika-motif mosaics in the front portico's ceiling panels. Take a guided tour of the exhibitions, available in German several times a week and in English once a week. Interestingly, the gallery has no permanent collection of its own. Satisfy additional curiosity at the onsite bookstore (which includes children's books), and end your visit with at the sumptuous Golden Bar.
