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.

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.
