Very small exhibition (just 2 rooms, started on Nov 15th) with some collection masterpieces. Do not expect anything exceptional. But it's worth visiting it on Mondays when there is no entrance fee, except for the long lines of waiting people outside

It's obvious from the other recent reviews that you have to go here with the right expectations - it is not on the same scale as its NY and Bilbao namesakes but that didn't stop it being a good modern art space. We saw the special exhibition by Gabriel Orozco called Asterisms and thought it was really great. It was... More

This has NOTHING to do with the real Guggenheim, which is in New York. I didn't know this and was fooled by the famous name. The entrance fee was very low (3€ for 2 people)... but it was still too much for the horrible content shown. There's ONE room with random stuff a guy picked from the sea (bottles, pieces... More

I am pained to write this but we had been looking forward to visiting the Guggenheim in Berlin, aware of the exemplary spaces in New York and Bilbao. We paid for our tickets and were then astonished to find the 'gallery' comprised a single medium sized room and a shop/café. I won't discuss the merits of the installation on display... More

Definitely not worth going to the Berlin Guggenheim. I went to the one in Bilbao and loved it, but this only had one room and a very poor exhibition. Even 5 Euros is too much. If anything, I had a good time with my friends because we were laughing at how ridiculous the museum was.

Not worth entering the building. Luckily we went on a Monday and had nothing to pay to see... nothing.

A very disappinting visit - I thought I must have missed some rooms. The was only a few exhibits (single figures) I am glad I didn't pay as it was included in the Berlin pass I had, I would have been very disappointed if I had paid extra. It seems they are using the Guggenheim name to get visitors but... More

After a 4 euro ticket, you can see the NOTHING: in the first room you walk over an airplane wing , in the second and the last you can see some Calabria postcard . The Nothing Absolute! They use the Guggenheim name to attract people : it's sheer robbery!! I posted also the tickets picture (twox4eur each tickets!)

Have visited Guggenheim's various and this was a small installation exhibition with a B737 wing, a couple of minor pieces and some postcards. Love modern art but i would have been embarrassed to charge the 4 Euro entrance. Classic rip off I'm afraid. The Guggenheim name has been tarnished

I like modern art very much but what I saw here was terrible. The exhibition consist of a hall where you can see 5 painting and 3 instillation and 2 films ... that's all Rather avoid the Berlin's Guggenheim.
