“Simply amazing”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Ultra modern building nestled between 18th century buildings, and the contrast of buildings is (to me) part of the experience. And a tour of this museum DOES feel like an experience! Though the contemporary art was not my husband's favorite, he was just fascinated taking photos of the interior architecture of the building.

“A superb modernist building with more empty space than art”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

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, it has enormous amounts of wasted space — the blank walls throughout much of the museum and the feel of emptiness in the basement. Some of the art seems lost (and deserved to be lost) in the large rooms in which it appears. It's almost as if the city decided it wanted another museum to show that it was up-to-date but couldn't find anything worthwhile to display. It does have an excellent bookshop with a wide range of art books.

“Modern art in a modern architecture”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

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.

“Great modern art museum”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

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 gift shop.
