Visit when you have time!

It's a modern museum which is worth a visit especially on Sundays when the entry is one Euro only!! It's never a waste of time!

I just loved the Neue Pinakothek. The building itself displays a special atmosphere. A lot of things to see, many different exhibitions, films, paintings, photos, architecture, you do not need to be a contemporary art addict to find something you'll enjoy. If you are going there in the next months, I especially recommend the exhibition about the photograph Nixon, the... More

Interested in modern art and design? Then get to Paris. This museum building is fabulous but hardly anything to see. Some good chairs but 'kinetic jewellery' and flamingo legs!?! And an entrance fee! Outrageous. Like the rest of the city, sights are spread thinly and talked up. There's nothing to see here.

This trip to Europe was done at great speed, and this was yet another gallery I didn't feel I did justice too. The design section is STUNNING, with a fantastic display of the applied arts in all disciplines from cars to jewellery. I will come back to do the rest properly.

This Munich museum is definitely worth a visit with design, architecture, art (paintings, sculpture) and jewellery on show. They offer bargain entry of €1 on Sunday's if you can fit that into your schedule If not, go anyway, you won't be sorry to have seen beautiful modern art and design. We particularly enjoyed the many Picasso paintings.

Fantastic collection including Baselitz and other abstract expressionist paintings. Wonderful space, the city clearly respects its citizen with a building and collection such as this

Opened in 2002, this impressive museum has a huge central atrium around which there are different galleries dedicated to international design, architecture, graphics and modern art. There is a mixture of permanent displays and temporary exhibitions, with a second floor sculpture gallery not yet in use. A good shop and excellent restaurant. Buy a combined ticket for this and the... More

Went on a Sunday when entry is 1 euro. The exhibitions were hit and miss - some where interesting, the others were just showing really obscure artists. Not a big fan of European tradition of trying to mix design and contemporary art under one roof - it just does not work most of the time. Was very surprised to find... More

Imposing but light and airy, this combines an excellent survey of mainly early to mid 20th century art - plenty of big names and powerful works arranged stylistically - with an emphasis on Germany, changing exhibitions of current artists, and a well conceived display of modern design. Plus, if you've ever wondered how they made Thonet furniture ... the answer... More
