The museum is housed in a modern, light-flooded building. There is an underground car park directly under the museum, so parking is no problem if you arrive in time before the museum opens. There is no entrance fee for the general section of the museum.

You will be shown a selection of interesting exhibits, but the museum as a whole is not very large. It is worth a visit, however, if you are in the vicinity.

The Museum Folkwang has a great reputation.
This time we visited and saw the great KEITH HARING exhibition.
Such a wonderful collection of his art work.
However beside of him it is without saying a must to see the other peace’s of artwork! From old masters to the new times all there all in great condition. Service is good especially under the virus 🦠 conditions.

This is a really brilliant museum to visit! The staff are super friendly and helpful. I was able to take pictures the whole way around (without a flash) and I wasn’t made to feel unwelcome. The staff were really helpful when I asked questions. The exhibits were amazing, I spent hours there and had a fantastic day. The cafe was also good but didn’t provide any dairy free milk alternatives - this is my only criticism! A great place to visit and I could not recommend it enough.

They have some modern and expressionism art. Not all paintings I wanted to see was up in the museum but in the archives. But a nice museum if you are in Essen.

I visited the Museum Folkwang twice in the last two weeks: once with friends, then solo. I returned so that I could see the masterpieces it contains at my own pace. The building is wonderfully light and airy. If you love Van Gogh, Matisse, Monet and Chagall you will love this treasure in Essen! We even ate a tasty lunch in the museum’s restaurant. I will definitely return frequently. Admission to the collection is free. There is a small charge for exhibitions. The staff were friendly.
