Nice gallery, located in a beautiful area of the city, surrounded with historic buildings. The gallery offers several art styles. The entrance is a little expensive, but is a good program anyway.

My first visit was on a German national holiday so the gallery was a bit crowded but the very large number of Kandinsky works was worth the entrance price all by itself. Surprisingly, taking photos was permitted. The museum's gift shop does not cater to non-German speakers/readers. A separate part of the Lenbachhaus is located in a wing of a... More

The admission charge was 10 Euro, which seemed steep for a small art museum. I liked the focus on a pretty narrow set of pictures (1800's, Blue Rider), but I would have like this even more with a lower admission charge.

Nicely presented collection, divided as shown on their website. The staff at the admissions window was not very helpful or attentive. 1 1/2 hours was quite enough time. Pleasant 15-minute walk from the main train station. Note the attractions across the street as well.

The collection isn't very large, but if you are wanting a relaxed visit (not an overwhelming amount of artwork to absorb), I'd highly recommend this museum. I studied and love art, while my husband is not as enthusiastic (depends on the artwork), and he found it worth the price and time. Plus it's right by Konigsplatz, so two birds with... More

Really didn't know much about the Lenbachhaus Museum prior to arriving and we were knocked out by the collection and the thoughtful approach to interpretation. It was everything a museum should be - educational, provocative, and fun.

Lenbachhaus is a lovely addition to the museums of Munich. If you love art, it is well worth an afternoon's time to linger there, especially with the extensive Blue Rider collection.

I liked spending time with so many Kandinskys. Also, there was a pleasant indoor/outdoor restaurant.
