  • Contemporary art is always liable to be hit and miss but I had a good visit thanks to the lovely building and excellent pop art exhibition including a large number of Warhols. The Cy Twombly room is s...  more »
  • And soon the Pinakothek (Moderne). Exterior of the building is modern and funny and nice contemporary art collection. Many American works such as Warhol and Twombly. Does not, however, all exhibits are exposed as not. Number displayed is less comfortable.

  • Architecturally the Museum Brandhorst is not fully convincing: lacks a convincing architectural concept of voltage and sensitivity. On the other hand has very fascinated by the exhibition of Seth Price and tied up. Incredibly diverse and inspiring is great curated the exhibition on 2 floors (ground floor and first floor). Be sure to go and take 1-2 hours. Also the 1st floor with CY Twombley shows great works and new insights.

  • Beautiful architecture inside and out. Most staff are generally nice but I am always a little peeved when I am told I can't take photos inside. I guess private art museums get to set their own rules :P
  • Museum has different exhibition in each level. It was interesting experience for me. Especially ground floor. One more compliment to the architecture. The building is amazing and very beautiful inside and outside.
  • One the greatest museums in Munich. Especially for Warhol fans. Cafe is nice to hang out.
  • The museum has a very interesting collection of modern art pieces in various media: paintings, photos, sculptures, videos, etc. If you are a fan of modern art, you should definitely come by and pay a visit. On Sundays the entrance ticket is only 1 euro! In my opinion that is definitely a great bargain!
  • Five stars for the permanent exhibit of Cy Twombly. His Bacchus painting draws attention to the light while implying the hidden darkness behind everything.
