Recently opened this Bauhaus centenary tribute is a dis appointment. Not much empathy with Bauhaus ideas on form and function. The exterior is a blank form and the site is wasted. Inside the collection of Bauhaus artefacts is very good but they are poorly displayed...More

We went to Weimar to see the new Bauhaus Museum and were disaapointed. Whereas das Neues Museum has been renovted and exhibits an interesting exhibition on the forerunners to Bauhaus, the Bauhaus Museum itself did not live up to our expectations: after a nice introduction...More

A must see for the Bauhaus exhibition: quite impressive overview of all the Bauhaus arts, crafts, architecture, including superb documents, models, objects , films and background on the protagonists, artists and the mediocre politics.

The new Bauhaus museum gives one a real inside to this avant-guarde movement. It commemorates the early phase of the most important design and art school of the 20th century and links its history with questions about the way of life of today and tomorrow....More
