  • Twelve great works of art by Cy Thombly impressed. Swims Polkes 1941-2010 frightened and impresses. Kerstin Brätsch Plate Heavy Mädel absolutely fantastic. Visit the Museum!

  • On a Sunday morning, they visited the Museum Brandhorst (and paid only one euro entrance fee) and were absolutely thrilled. Impressive building and a really great collection on three levels. The Cy Twombly rooms are an absolute force - of course because of the art, but also because of the interior design. All really well done, great lighting and space concepts (and a great collection anyway). A nice excursion for about 1-1.5 hours! Afterwards you can also have lunch in the area around the university.

  • This is a small art museum with the largest collection of Andy Warhol works in Europe. The building looks modern from the outside and catches your attention.  more »

  • Nice museum. Definitely it is a place which worth a visit. The location of this place is really great. There is a bus stop and a metro station located near this place. What is more, the architecture of this place is really magnificent. Also this building surrounded by a cute park zone where you can rest for a second and continue your journey.
  • Fantastic museum, with a great collection and in a very nice building. Three floors, plenty of space and lots of great pieces of art, a museum shop and a little café .. easy to spend a few hours. You can get audio guides, there's usually also something for kids and on Sundays it's only 1€ to get in (like for many of the museums in the area).
  • We were recommended to visit here by an art student friend and it was definitely worth the visit. Come and splash out a few hours and wittiness some strange yet breathtaking artworks.
  • Great contemporary art museum. It hosts both temporary and permanent exhibitions. I enjoyed visiting it.
  • A great museum, would recommend going there ON Sundays as the admission costs only 1 euro. A must see if you live in Munich
