This is a small but concentrated distillation of Bauhaus items/models/studies and theoretical philosophy. For lovers of design where function defines form it's almost the Holy Grail. The physical exhibits - furniture, pottery, metalwork, etc. - are a delight. The philosophy behind them still informs design today; remarkable. Because the Bauhaus movement was so beset by personal and political difficulties, little in the way of production occurred, but there are drawings and artworks that amply illustrate the guiding philosophy. The architectural models, especially of the Barcelona Pavilion, are well presented and the free audio guide is very informative.
The building is a little tired (underfunded?), but the staff are enthusiastic and helpful. The shop has a good range of items from reasonable to expensive that would make a great gift for a Bauhaus lover.
