I went along in May 14, to see the Michael Raedecker exhibition, which I thoroughly enjoyed, although I did have the gallery to myself. I also enjoyed seeing the James Turrell with four light installations. As a previous reviewer said, enjoyed the beauty in peace, looking forward to coming back.

We only had access to a small part of the entire museum, don't know why there was only a small exhibition, which also seemed pretty basic. There were one or two pieces from famous artists, but mostly nothing really exciting. The best part was a book we bought with moving pictures from the gift shop.

The Sprengel Museum houses a superb collection of works by Kurt Schwitters, along with a must-see reconstruction of one room of Schwitters' Hannover Merzbau and a vast Kurt Schwitters archive. There is also a reconstruction of El Lissitzky's Abstract Cabinet that is well worth a visit. The museum itself seems a bit daunting at first, as the prevalence of concrete... More

This is a gallery museum that gives you a very German feeling. But there were artworks of Andy Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Max Ernst and Kurt Schwitter. The gallery is not far from the city center. It is not crowded and noisy as the major museums. Which kind of gives you chance to enjoy the beauty in peace. I... More

We ended up in Hannover a bit by accident, escorting our son to visit a friend. My husband and I decided to spend the rainy morning hours at the Sprengel. My husband is a huge fan of modern art; I have interest more than love in the form. What I enjoyed on this morning was the fact that the curation... More

It is a great place to visit with friends and if you have time, don't miss the restaurant to see the Machse lake view.

Apart from the place and the art itself which are the reasons why am I giving relatively high rating, the receptionists there where weird! They thought that I will steal some of the shoes painted there and considered as art! There where always someone following me or looking to me in a weird way and they will look away as... More

This is an amazing building and perfect housing for this fabulous collection of modern art. There are regular collections of paintings as well as specialist exhibits. Best value is to go on a Friday when entrance is free!

Museum of Modern Art,- so be prepared but has examples of some of the best. Walked from the Rauthause Town Center around the lake and your are there. Across the street from the museum is a nice place to sit, watch the birds, and there is a large lake/waterway. You can walk from the Center of town to this Museum... More
