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

The building is realy beautifull, but the collection impressed me a lot less! To much Leipzig native artists of average quality. Some nice old 17th century Dutch Masters, but that's not what in want to see in Leipzig! Everything could be a lot more daring and exciting....like the building and the statue at the entrance!

The 20th century galleries on the main floor are the real attraction here, with some terrific pieces by Max Beckmann, a Leipzig native, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and other expressionist giants. I also enjoyed the thoughtful selection of works from the GDR, by arists critical od the regime, and the dramatic lobby display of paintings by Anselm Kiefer, an artist widely... More

Beautiful, spacious building that shows off the art collection to its best. I particularly liked the 20th century galleries, but there's a broad range of art within the permanent collection, including some Dutch Masters, religious art, and a great temporary exhibition. Worth the small entry fee.

From the outside it looks like an unfinished warehouse covered in plastic cladding, but inside it is a cleverly designed, multi-faceted interaction of spaces, materials and textures, utilising the interaction of the exhibition spaces, staircase and light sources (both natural and artificial) to display the pieces on display. It is, in fact, a piece of contemporary art all of its... More

You know when you get to see the building from the outside that things will be incredible on the inside. The Leipziger have really created something special here. I loved seeing more of Max Beckman and his depictions of the absolute agony of the 20th Century. I'm sure others will have their favourites as there are many to choose from.... More

Impressive display for such a relatively small... More

We have been here many times, and there is always something interesting going on. The museum has a huge collection of not so known art. The open design of the building with is inner space and glass walls is sensational. One should try the cafeteria.

Museum to be visited mainly for its impressive architecture. Collection itself is sub-top even though good overview is given of some influential artists like Klinger,...
