  • מבחוץ המוזאון נראה מרשים מאוד . גם מבפנים הוא מרשים רק שהתצוגה שהייתה שם לא משהו . והיחס של העובדים במקום לא נחמד . 
  • Follow the great path of fine white gravel of the English Garden Park until our next goal which is also included within it, even if not related itself. It is of the Haus ders Kunst, or House of the art. Adolfo Hitler put the first stone in 1933, and then the building is developed in the model of the architecture National Socialist. Its purpose was to report propagandisticamente the German art that he liked to as opposed to the "degenerate" of early 20TH century art. The facade is a declaration of closed-minded because the wall and columns are built with large stone plates that repel the view even more. It is the closest thing to a bunker with columns and windows. Now I find out that there is a very good nightclub in the basement, called P1, and a nice bar and terrace on the ground floor, the Golden Bar. Well, at least serves to something useful. We went to have a look at the exhibition halls today dedicated to temporary exhibitions of modern and contemporary art and photographers. We agreed to a large room but I don't remember what it was, it was a great space with low light and bright walls, it would be another example of degenerate art? No it is. We toured almost the entire ground floor until we found the bathrooms, and hence if gave good account because a liter of beer was not going to evacuate just once. This if it is alcohol degeneration. We went back to the street without seeing any sign of security or access control or anything because probably the entrance was free, and they are not going to bother to monitor a door where the admission is not charged.
