With more than 700 works displayed in approximately 200 exhibits, Museum Brandhorst is one of Munich's leading modern art museums. Housed in a large, rectangular structure with a multicolored facade, the museum's original collection included works from classical avant-garde artists and post-war European Modernists. The collection has expanded to feature more than 100 exhibits by Andy Warhol--the largest holding of works by the Pop Art artist in Europe. You'll also find 170 works by American artist Cy Twombly. A number of special exhibits pop up throughout the year, many focusing on photographs and multimedia works. Visit on Sundays to get in for just 1 euro.

  • This is the place someone should visit. Just get there early so you could walk through all separate departments.

  • The collection is very small and not that impressive. Museum employees were extremely rude. They followed us constantly as if we were thieves, constantly glared at us, though we didn't do anything besides looking. When we started browsing through books which were laid out for visitors, a woman came to me and said that we should put the books the same way they were lying. Immediately after saying this she started arranging the books right away, though we only looked at one... All and all we felt very unwelcome there as if the staff doesn't like visitors.
  • This place is quite nice, and has a good collection of modern art, a book store, and a café. The only thing is that, since it's usually not crowded, security tend to follow you around the rooms, almost intimidating you for being there.
  • Very nice example for a good museum for modern and contemporary art. With big bright rooms and high ceilings it leaves guest with a general positive feeling after a visit.
  • I'm not a fan. The collection is very small, and weird. It leaves you depressed and melancholic.
  • They don't allow photography, sadly, but it's still worth a visit if you're nearby. The Brandhorst features the private collection of Munich-based collectors.
