Nice but.. Small
Aug 2020 • Solo
As you get inside in the first two rooms you expect a gorgeous collection but there it stops as other rooms are way less interesting. Very nice the Cy towmblin collection in the first floor. The basement was under renovation.

Disappointed since don’t care for the art in its collection
Dec 2019
The better pieces are right when you enter. Unless you like or (pretend to) understand
Contemporary art, not worth your time. Lots of pictures that have paint drippings. Most memorable piece, at least to me, was a Warhol piece created by the artist and his minions relieving themselves on large canvas. Much more Cy Twombly than Warhol. The art is well presented.

Worth seeing Warhol
Apr 2019
Probably the largest Warhol collection here, therefore worth a visit. Suggested if you are into contemporary art, otherwise all the remaining sections of the museum won't tell you much

Fab if you like Cy Twombly
Dec 2019
Good collection of contemporary art. Fantastic exhibition of Cy Twombly works beautifully hung. Worth a visit for these alone and free if you buy the all in Pinakotheke ticket.

Andy Warhol collection
Oct 2019 • Solo
This is a small art museum with the largest collection of Andy Warhol works in Europe. The building looks modern from the outside and catches your attention.

An impressive modern art private collection
Jul 2019 • Family
The building itself with thousands of ceramic rods coating the exterior is worth noticing. The collection houses perhaps the largest Cy Twombly collection extant with floors devoted to Andy Warhol and contemporary artists. The guided private tour provided an understanding of the origins of contemporary art.Very enjoyable for those interested in modern art.

Small and only worth to see Warhol
Jul 2019 • Solo
This museum is super small and the only thing worth seeing is Warhol but the rest didn't take long to see. Good to kill time if you have nothing else to do.

Very clean place, great collection of art
Jul 2019 • Family
This museum is very clean and well designed with many paintings and sculptures, and has the most Andy Warhol art of any other museum in Europe. It’s a very large collection of artwork, and I would recommend it to others who want to see many different forms of modern art.

Great art and venue, absolutely the rudest staff ever.
Jun 2019 • Friends
Myself and my sister visited this lovely small museum on a weekend trip to Munich. The building is beautifully designed inside and out, and this is worthy if the €7 entry fee alone. We both found the exhibits to our taste, the lower floor possibly a little sinister, but nonetheless interesting. Some good stuff from Warhol and other pop artists on the other 2 floors made for a welcome and peaceful escape from a very hot day outside, and the usual weekend crowds in the otherwise beautiful city of Munich.

The staff at this museum are an absolute disgrace and an embarrassment to their profession. The guy selling the tickets was the rudest, most miserable person I have ever come across in that kind of situation. The other security staff employed around the various rooms were also sullen and clearly had no intention or desire to engage with their guests. I would urge the management of this venue to find the reasons behind why their staff appear to be so unhappy. Visiting Art Galleries and Museums is meant to be a pleasurable experience. The staff here did nothing to promote this.

Pretentious Rubbish
Jun 2019 • Solo
This museum epitomises everything I hate about modern art. Most of it is pretentious rubbish. The exhibit of Cy Twombly is the worst example of why. Most of it is nothing more than child-like scrawls with his interpretation of the Battle of Lepanto being case in point.

If you want to see what real art looks like, the Alte Pinakothek is only five minutes walk away. It's a good thing I visited on a Sunday where the entrance fee is only €1. The Andy Warhal exhibition was "okay", otherwise I'd have felt cheated even at €1. Just about the only thing I liked about the museum is the building itself.

Probably okay if you like modern art.
