Its permanent exhibition displays furniture, ceramics, prints, sculptures, photographs and sketches, all created in the workshop. The museums shop has nice, but very expensive items.

It looked great but this is the museum that closes at 17:00 which we didn't expect because the others are open until 18:00. Good coffee in the café and lovely things to buy in the shop.

One of the places I was most looking forward to. There is a fee of 11 euros, so not too expensive. There was an art exhibition on (an artist I'd never heard of) which was very interesting and then we went through to the actual design part of the museum, which was slightly smaller than expected; albeit very interesting.

Well someone described this place. For the connoisseurs. Exhibitions at a high level. Mass tourist looking for entertainment rather not find anything interesting here. But for me interesting.

First impressions are good as the building itself is architecturally fantastic but I was disappointed by the lack of content inside. I thought there would be more exhibits especially paintings. There are some good examples of the timeless furniture that was designed there but again for me perhaps not enough. Then guided audio tour was informative and worth while if... More

I was today at Bauhaus-Archiv in Berlin to see the exhibition based on Moholy-nagys work and I was well impressed! He was really a genius of his time. I don't know what kind of exhibitions there have been in the past but this one was interesting to see.

Love art galleries. Not this one. Boring. The building is nice, everything inside was boring. MOMA in NYC is so much nicer. Most people will not appreciate this.

The exhibition area is very small. So the museum had to made a lot of trade offs in deciding what to show and what to leave out. There are a few paintings, a few furniture examples and some architecture models. Thats all. The audo guide is also not very helpful Bauhaus deserves definetly more - but in this building is...

It's good to know where is the beginning of all that minimalism and functionalism we all pray to now. See what really inspired Johny Ive to craft your iPhone:)
