There is a lot of changing top exhibitions of modern art. The Bundeskunsthalle has a very good reputation worldwide, so they get very good exhibits. They display three to five differenet themes simultaneously, in general. Look at their homepage before planning- it is worth. It is a good day trip when you are in Cologne (with secondary line half an... More

Huge galleries, with small pieces of art. Austere, cold atmosphere. Medium size collection, all modern.

The exhibition of Impressionism Art from Japan collections is amazing. I spent an hour and a bit the first time I came during the lunch time, but this was not enough for me - and I came back just before the dinner, in the evening. Before I came here, I didn't even know that there is an extensive collection of... More

Lovely architecture that houses interesting art. Very accessible from the public train system and close to the park on the Rhine.

Enjoyed all 3 exhibits available on the day of our visit. Has also a very good restaurant (but be sure that you point out correctly what you want from the menue... or else you might get something similar, e.g. vegeterian instead of with meat).

Wonderful Karl Lagerfeld exhibition at the Bundeskunsthalle. There is everything from all the special Channel buttons to the "tailleurs" and original ball gowns. The last room with original long dress creations is a visual feast. Laser cut paper hanging from the ceiling create a stunning frame for absolutely spectacular creations. Very highly recommended!

Though they are wasting a lot of space currently with a fashion exhibition, along with the neighboring museum (two separate institutions) this is a nice space for contemporary art. Don't miss the rooftop.

This exhibition at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn is running until September 2015 so take time to go and visit if you are in the area. Even if you are not into fashion, his couture pieces, shoes and handbags are genuine works of art that you can't fail to appreciate. The intricacy of the outfits is incredible and the beautiful room... More

As an art critic I visit many museums around the world. This has to be one of the worst that I have had the misfortune to visit based on the staff. A total inconsistency between different staff members on what size of satchel was acceptable... and then that completely unacceptable feeling of people so bored with their jobs that they... More

I wandered in here today, partly because I had the Bonn Regio Welcome Card (so it was free) and partly because I had to go the bathroom and partly because I wanted to visit ONE of the museums on the Museum Mile and didn't want to pay the extra to go into the Art Museum next door. All that said,... More
