The building of the museum is very beautiful even for not connoisseurs of art. This building is located on the street where the air is pleasant. It's not the city smog! Clean air is due to the remoteness from the main streets and humid - due to the river. This air is fabulous. The building of the museum looks very... More

This smaller museum is an absolute delight. There are 3 floors, each holding their own surprises, and is exceptionally well curated. On the first floor, and following on from ecclesiastic gothic there is a room with dark heavy curtains, which takes the visitor from the 1500's straight to the 1700's. The upper floor contains some tiny beautiful porcelain statues and... More

It's an interesting sculture museum, very near the other famous museums in the city. The downside is that you have to pay to get in. It's small, you can finish it in one hour.

It had a nice collection of statues and different types, Asian and Eygptian, then of course the classical ones. It is small but we didn't go to the bottom area - couldn't find it where they stored them. If you have time check it out.

The Liebieghaus is a beautiful old home that is as big as a castle and looks somewhat like one. Their collection ranges from ancient Egypt and middle ages to current art shows like Jeff Koons. There is a small cafe with homemade cakes and other light snacks and an outside patio for enjoying conversation and coffee. The yard is well... More

To pay 7 euros was a bit expensive but everyone raved about it. It's great if you want a brief overview of art history from around the world. However if you know anything at all it will be quite boring. Half of it seemed to be closed too. I hear the special exhibits are amazing tho.

This is a medium sized museum, but it is very enjoyable and fullfilling. The galleries are very well arranged, and contain well presented info that really helps to appreciate the artworks and their history. And if you really want to delve further, the Liebieghaus has a reading room for you to peruse at your leisure. A must for art lovers.

This is an interesting collection of Classical sculpture in a beautiful setting. The permanent collection is a very solid offering of art from Rome, Egypt and Asia as well as Europe and a rare Black Venus bronze was on display as well. A lot of thought went into the presentation of the works to show them in the best possible... More
