  • We went through the door and amazed us the architecture of the building. Very beautiful to behold it. Museum of modern and contemporary art, worth only enter if you like much art.

  • The Guide I used recommended the Brandhorst collection as a highlight of the city. Which I disagree with clearly: there are fewer highlights than expected, the Pinakothek der Moderne raised me far more. The collection is itself but worth a visit! Tip: In the Combi ticket with at least one of the art galleries to save significantly Please note: inside photo ban is irritating: there are no divisions or barriers before the works, every few minutes so a guest raises inadvertently the alarm very bad: the grim staff that often feels disturbed by the visitors when playing on your mobile phone

  • You can find another wonderful Museum for erne art right next to the Pinakothek der Moderne. So far I am stuck in the art gallery, but the visit of the Museum Brandhorst. I'm coming back!

  • Five stars for the permanent exhibit of Cy Twomblyq. His Bacchus painting draws attention to the light while implying the hidden darkness behind everything.
  • Small but worth a visit if you're interested in modern art
  • 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.
  • you HAVE TO see the inside! sunday entry is 1EUR!
