This museum is remarkable as a display of the taste and continuing ambition of a privat collector. As such, it on the one hand, introduces into the collection assembled over the decades, which is excellent and has deeply influenced the views on modern art in Germany, although, in my view, it is remarkably one sided in favoring Richter, Baselitz and...

We really loved the Heinz Mack exhibition. The architecture of the museum matched it perfectly. And the Lichtentaler Allee was a perfect location for this lovely museum!

The quality of the artists exhibited is steadily going down since a few years. After 15 minutes I left the museum, I had seen enough.

The brochure specifies that the Frieder Burda collection contains some 800 items, mostly paintings. Yet when you visit this museum (spectacular architecture, by the way) there is only a temporary exhibition which you may like or not, but no items of the permanent collection. I enquired about this and was told that the actual Frieder Burda collection is rarely visible... More

Architecturally it must be one of the top museums in the world. Well lit, easy to navigate, clean lines, in total touch with th outside. Not cheap but well worth a visit.

The museum building is a realy beautiful modernist and functional exhibition space. I went to the Heinz Mack exhibition and I guess that's the reason why I opted for only three stars. You can see a nice and interesting collection of works and some working groups of Heiz Mack. But it feels clean and distant, not very "raisonné". You walk... More

Perhaps my reaction is colored by visiting a week earlier the new Whitney museum in NYC. The general description and information about this private museum made me think it was far more extensive and so I felt disappointed. Found a very good temporary exhibit of a contemporary artist. No audio guide in English. No info written in English... Just the... More

I love love love this place. Went there on Saturday for the Heinz Mack exhibit and took the tour. The guide, Tamara something, was great. Very knowledgeable and not boring. The building is by Richard Meier (who also designed the Getty Center in LA). If you like art and architecture, this place is for you.
