  • You can purchase an integrated ticket for visiting three Pinakotheken and the Museum Brandhorst and the one day bypass all four museums that are located next to each other and form a quadrangle (if staying in Munich is limited to one day visiting three Pinakotheken is required-this is the most main attractions). Brandhorst Museum is located in the original building next to the Pinakotekoj of modernity. Photography is prohibited, but even if it were allowed, I wouldn't take photos. None of their paintings have not impressed me. A large collection of American abstract artist Cy Twombly I did not liked, especially the unpleasant impression produces large series of his enormous paintings "Roses". In the vast Hall of the huge paintings, resembling a child's unskilled daubing a wide brush with schematic depiction of roses. These pictures are more likely to arouse disgust. The most widely in the Museum Brandhorst presented two series of Saya Twombly-"Roses" and "Lepanto". The Museum was quite empty, I was the only visitor. If on examination of the Alte Pinakothek collections, new Pinakothek, Pinakothek modern times I spent several hours on each, in the halls of the Museum Brandhorst I spent just 5 minutes, beating all halls quick step, because these paintings have delayed no like.

  • After the visit of 2 picture galleries we looked at us yet this museum. First, you have to say the staff here, was very unfriendly in contrast to the two previous museums. And as far as the Gemälte is concerned, can you not really take seriously what brought the exhibited artists on the canvas as art, even if famous name on it. It reminds much of the blobs of smaller children.

  • Because this is not a monothematic Museum you do not understand why an entire floor needs to be dedicated to Twombly, whose works are definitely not for everyone, and indeed, some are borderline inexplicable. Recommend to visit after the others in the area. The ticket to a euro on Sunday definitely helps even the uninitiated to get closer to art, if only out of curiosity.

  • 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!
