I went to the museum to see the photographs of Magnum photographer Dennis Stock (1928-2010) which was just brilliant. This exhibition is on until 25 January 2015, don’t miss it. The permanent collection of the museum includes mainly art from the 16th and 17th century and some from the 19th and 20th century. You can spend some interesting hours wondering... More

This museum is not that small but in the end it is: the collection is not world shocking with one Rembrandt (or two, depending on the definition) as the highlight. The exhibition was rather good but too spacious for the small drawings. It probably doesn't help that the number of visitors was smaller than the number of staff: an indication... More

The Suermondt Ludwig museum is an excellent example of what too little advertisement can do to an otherwise excellent collection. My group had the opportunity to visit the museum while it was being renovated and got an great tour of the collection by the museum's curator, Michael. Unfortunately, the museum is so underfunded that it has difficulty maintaining all of... More

Although it is not a very popular museum, the Suermondt Ludwig museum has a great collection that is wonderfully displayed. I am currently taking a class that has allowed me to travel to a large number of museums, including some much better known exhibits such as the Rijksmuseum. However, the Suermondt Ludwig Museum stands out due to its friendly employees... More

Yes, the museum is usually empty; very few people go there. However, it has an extraordinary collection of Art. In my opinion the best of the Meuse-Rhine Euroregio (Liège, Aachen, Maastricht). It has excellent flemish paintings, the works of some important painters from Germany and some surprises. My suggestion is to start from top to bottom unless you really like... More

The museum has fine permanent collection of German and Dutch art. They organize also nice temporary exhibitions; when I visited it there was a nice one with Rembrandt's etchings.

As we approached the museum it seemed rather quiet. On entering a helpful assistant informed us the collection was not on view. Disappointing as it was Easter week and they should have been geared up for tourists.
