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.

This is a small but impressive new museum and worth a visit, but on the whole, the collection is not as impressive as the architecture and the design department in particular is disappointing. There are a few highlights nonetheless (liked Ai Wei Wei's Tea Cube!!) and a good bookshop next door. There is a sort of spiral staircase that looks very smart but its irregularity makes at a bit difficult to navigate if you are poor-sighted or not the youngest - recommend the lift in this case. Attended an enjoyable concert here in the evening and the acoustics were far better than expected, but there were several hundred people there and only one poor woman serving drinks on a very hot evening indeed.

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.

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.

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.
