We went during a special Picasso exhibit. Having studies Picasso when I was in school, the exhibit sounded interesting but it didn't inspire me. As a special exhibit, I can't review what the museum is like in other times. There was an exhibit of William Hogarth's engravings we enjoyed much more. This may be more a commentary on our artistic... More

Overall the quality of the paintings and the layout and facilities of the place were good, but there is no audioguide for any language other than German and no written labels or information in any language bar German, which makes the accessiblity for non-German speaking visitors lesser quality.

We went for a special exhibition and after that wanted to take a good look at their collection. Especially in the room with the northern light one got literairy delighted and enlighted. Nice expressionist and impressionist paintings.

I don't often visit major art galleries, mostly because I am a bit intimidated by their size and by the crowds around the most famous artists' pictures. At the Kunsthalle, there is plenty of space for everyone. The staff are relaxed and you can get really close to paintings by Van Gogh, Manet and Cezanne, to name a few. Our... More

It is not a big museum but contains a nice selection of pictures. Mainly German romanticism, but they are exhibited with a contemporary selection. Nice fusion. The works are explained in detail (in German). As this is the main museum in Bremen it should be the number one atraction for the art lovers.It should be accompanied by the visit of... More

The museum has an amazing, well curated collection. I especially loved the extensive works on paper. The museum has an interesting history as it has been collectively supported but many families for centuries. Also, there is a delicious restaurant for coffee or a nice meal.

I took a class of students for a visit to the museum. Our school often does as they have very good guided tours (although ours could have been a little more age orientated) and often update their exhibitions. The permanent collection is very good too.

In November we saw an excellent exhibition with paintings of the Norvegian Edvard Munch. The Kunsthalle has an excellent collection of paintings, allways worth a visit. Be there early, so you avoid longer waiting to get in.
