The Burda Museum houses a series of changing exhibitions, and obviously different shows will appeal to different art-lovers. The building is modern and the various shows are well hung and plenty of information is available. There is also a worthwile shop.

We were in the vicinity of this museum by chance. Although we were a little tired of going round in circles trying to find the visitors centre we decided to follow the arrows and down the lane in this lovely park we found this imposing modern building. But it was closed because it was a Monday. However the outside looked... More

This is an amazing purpose built gallery of modern art. The bulk of the works on display were by Gerhardt Richter, and, as we'd just seen an exhibition of his work at the Fondation Beyerler in Basel we really enjoyed it. A wonderful experience.

Beautiful building at a great location (Lichtentaler Allee). Splendid artworks from the 20th century ranging from Picasso to contemporary German artists. Not too big or pompous.

Wonderful personal collection of modern art set in a stunning modern building which is itself a work of art.

We went there to see the JR Exhibition, and we liked it a lot, but I can't judge the museum itself, as their was only a small portion of the permanent collection in place. The location was good and the JR exhibition well done.

The reason for our detour from our route Austria - Holland was to visit this exhibition. We are so glad we did. Not only a fantastic overview of JR's artistic career so far, but what made it very special are the interactive Inside Out Project, where in the museum you can have your portrait taken in a very large B&W...

The Museum consist of two parts. In the main, very modern building was and exhibit of Emil Nolde, very well hung. In the older building there were very contemporary works, some of which were very far out, some that I liked. There are ramps as well as an elevator - easy to navigate. We ate in the coffee shop, which... More

The temporary exhibit gave me the opportunity to deepen my perception of this artist. The display was obviously of high quality and the Museum has been well designed to be a perfect casket for art pieces. It is a small museum, well organised and with high quality exhibits.

The Frieder Burda Museum in the elegant old German spa town of Baden-Baden always shows great exhibitions. Either from the extensive collection of the house, or from other venerable institutions. The building itself Is wonderful, with thrilling perspectives and surprising light sources. The summer of 2013 has been given over to a magnificent exhibition of the great German expressionist, Emil... More
