  • I walked to the museum from my hotel which only took 30 minutes and allowed me to experience the beauty of the Bauhaus homes in the area. The museum is fabulous. It has the most wonderful collection o...  more »
  • Museum in two parts: the former with beautiful collections or the course is classic and well signposted. A few famous paintings are exposed. The new who's worth by its architecture, or indications are zero and the "art" collections modern does not concern me.

  • The exhibitions was not a hit, the paintings are shown by collection and not ordered chronology, which can be a bit confusing. If you are not a big fan of modern art, you better pass. There were almost nothing that is not that expressive new style modern paintings in which the whole canvas is just a colorful mess. The library, on the other hand, was full of books and very nice and pleasant. I would return the museum someday, but only to visit the library. I wouldn't waste my time again at the exhibitions.
  • Very interesting and monumental interior with much of free space. Hospitable and kind watchers. But the exhibition was awful. Pieces of stone and metal they call the art. The paintings divided by collections, not by styles. Super stupid movies was shown. Looks like they gave a chance to mad people to express themselves.
  • Very nice museum with very nice and alternating exhibitions. Good for family visits or a nice interesting date. They serve wine at the bar :) They also hold special events every once and a while, check that out Parking is free in the kiriya parking lot on the end of the street, thank me later.
  • Super collection of 19 to 20th century works. Nice visiting exhibits. Nice space. Conducive to contemplation
  • It's great. Seriously. Still, tge museum does not inform that its contemporary building is closed for redecoration. Kind of a bummer.
