  • Even if you have little time, the visit to the Pinakothek der Moderne should be included in the visit program. Interesting building architecture and beautiful exhibits provide many impressions.

  • The building itself is worth a visit for its architecture. The collections are interesting, with pieces by world-famous painters (Picasso, etc.) but above all a rich collection of German painting, which is rarely seen in the museums of Paris, London, New York or San Francisco. The opportunity to discover the contemporary artistic movements of the Bauhaus.

  • We were in this museum on a Sunday that is easily accessible by public transport. On Sundays, admission costs only 1€. However, it should be noted that you are not allowed to bring large bags to the museum. For this purpose, however, there are wardrobes and lockers. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to see the entire museum. The museum is divided into many different rooms with different themes. There are a wide variety of works of art, not just paintings. You can definitely get busy here for a while. The only thing that I find a pity was that the security is very unfriendly and that I haven't found any art of women. But you have to take into account that I was not in all rooms.

  • This place is so much larger than I even realized. I think we saw like maybe a third of the collection. I love that it has a whole array of modern art, including product design and furniture, which was mostly what we looked at. We passed a tour group, and the tour sounded like a lot of fun and interesting information, so I definitely recommend timing your visit to catch one.
  • If you love modern architecture, design and very very modern art this is the place to go in Munich. I must say however that a lot of the graphic art was "Red stripe on a coloured canvas"- like.
  • it's a very cool museum which allows you to enjoy not only inside the building but also gives opportunity to artists and dancers to show their art and fun life outside!
  • One of the best of not The Best art museum I've ever been anywhere in the world. From the building's architecture to the collections to the curation, this museum offers an absolute cultural feast. They also have an impressive design section at the basement that's not to be missed.
  • I had the worst experience from this museum. The two ladies at the info desk who are lending audio devices kept saying that you don’t need it and many other things, trying not to lend them. That is my first experience among all other museums. If it was possible, I would give them zero stars
