Nice to have such museum but weak collection for a city as Nürnberg. I like more the bookshop then the gallery. Huge building for a little art. But need to see anyway for Gerhard Richter.

This museum will not only fascinate you with its art but also with its architecture. There was quite some controversy when this ultra-modern building was incorporated into what is essentially Nuremberg's "old town", but the architecture and interior design have a way of drawing one...More

Eclectic and welcoming, this museum did impress. The building architecture is stunning. The works on display during our visit was unique and at times quite inspiring. The Sunday entrance of only 1 euro was very nice. The museum is small, so you can make it...More

Amazing modern art museum with stunning pieces, simply a must see. We were the only people there except the staff which seemed somewhat strange, but what can I say? it was fantastic, reminded me a little of the one in Barcelona.

The Neues Museum bills itself as a museum of modern art and design — for some reason "design" appears in English — and having seen some great German and Austrian design museums, I was looking forward to this new museum, whose building is very impressive. Unfortunately,...More

We like the entrance coming from a small square. NIce people at the reception. The interior is really interesting and unexpected. Exhibition maybe a bit unequal but for sure enough thrilling and interesting.

Tucked away in the Old Town is this beautiful modern building with a wonderful collection of modern art. In addition to being a great museum, it also provides a nice counterpoint to the many historical attractions of Nurnberg. The museum also has a very nice...More
