“Beautiful venue and great exhibition”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Since I had 2.5 days to spend in Munich, I thought I might as well visit all three Pinakothek as well as the Brandhorst.

Der Moderne didn't disappoint at all with a great exhibition on Moroccan rugs which happens to be my latest piece of furniture I've recently been fancying. The place is beautiful, spot clean and well organized. The staff is helpful and the bookshop has some nice books as well.

“Two bits of advice”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

1. As you're walking round the paintings part, try to remember the route you took to get where you are. For some reason there aren't many signs, and it can be worrying if you don't know how you're going to get out of the Borgesian labyrinth;

2. If you have a cup of tea in the cafe downstairs - the one in the vast, domed, atrium type thing - be very careful what sort you ask for. It isn't easy, at least if what you want is ordinary English-type tea, you don't recognise anything on the list, and you don't speak much German.

“Great museum, especially the design area”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is a wonderful new museum, with lots of wonderful modern art, including Warhol and the Germans like Baselitz and Kiefer, and a terrific design section with lots of exhibits from all around Europe and the States. It also has a very nice cafe.

“A Beautiful Museum!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Pinakotek der Moderne is my favourite museum in Germany.
It's a beautiful modern building and the art collections are very interesting.
Sometimes museums of this calibre can be axhausting and even boring, but this one is not. I recommend. Very well located near the Altstadt. One small minus: The museum cafe is not very well run and even the tables can be dirty. Fortunately there are plenty of other cafes nearby.

“beware the handbag scrutiny!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is certainly a pleasant place to indulge in viewing modern art, especially the identified "degenerate" art of the Nazi era. Our handbags were given the "okay" by one female guard and then another one decided they were "too big" to safely view the paintings. These were not the size of overnight totes! We had to back-track to the over-crowded cloak room and dig out two 1euro pieces to stash the bags in 2 lockers. I visit many museums and have never had this level of high-handedness.
