The architecture of the museum is wonderful. Large spaces with very high ceilings and large glass walls. The building is covered with sand glass. There are large glass walls in some spaces where you catch the silhouette of the city, which is amazing. The painting collection is very large varying from the 16th century to contemporary. It is a very... More

For me the museum did not work really well. The separate collection themes are rather small and sometimes oddly combined (a 20th century work amidst 16th paintings). The strongest collections were those donated as a gift, and the Max Klinger collection. The top floor with contemporary work I found rather poor - but this is as always a very subjective... More

We came at 10am and left at 3.30pm.That alone speaks for itself. The great surprise was the Paul Klee Exhibition but every other floor was a revelation as well. What an interesting collection and how diverse !Well displays too.Do visit when in Leipzig.

Some impressive collections from 15th century to contemporary. Paul Klee as its best. Temporary collections includes Cranach the Young and Klinger. You can even see a Greco. Worth a visit. You need a couple of hours.

This galley is not as pretentios as some European addresses, many paintings were reacquired in the end of the XX century, having been lost first to Nazi propaganda (fight against degenerative art) and later to the Soviet occupation (confiscated after the USSR mandate over Leipzig hit in). The collection is divided between 3 floors of a purpose built modern building,... More

Thought this collection worthwhile if only for its paintings by Max Beckmann and sculptures from Max Klinger. Also, some fine Dutch masters in addition to about a dozen works by Lucas Cranach the Elder. Worth the five euro charge foe the permanent collection.

The museum has some very impressive collections. I especially liked the paitings with a theme on death. There are at least three of them which are very good, like "the peeing death" and "the death island". Most of the paitings have quite a dark theme, but on the other hand are very expressive.

The cost only 5 euros and few people visiting but Cranach pictures and many others that will take your breath away. Not to be missed

Enjoyed the museum's collection of Max Beckmann. The museum had an extensive catalog of his works. For a fan of early 20th century Germany modern art this collection pleased me.
