20th Century Painters, architecture, design, temporary exhibitions, and a beautiful cafe
Sep 2021
This is my favourite museum in Munich, due to its great collection of 20th century paintings, and the exhibitions they organize. It is located very close to the center, university as part of a museum island, and the most important art collections in munich are all distributed to different museums in this area. (modern, new, old, glyptothek (sculptures), egyptian, horst museum....
The building itself has a Bauhaus architecture, and has a small cafe where you can order a good quality coffee and a cake. In the museum shop and in the closeby bookstores you can spend a nice day, and find interesting books. Last but not least, the museum entrance is only 1 eur on sunday, which makes it accessible to everyone, which I also find really consistent with values in art.
The museum also offers yearly access cards, as for many people, it is not one time visit, but a regular stop for art exhibitions.

Rudest museum staff ever encountered
Aug 2021 • Solo
I went a full hour before close to purchase tickets for the next day. They seemed extremely annoyed to serve me and kept telling me not to go to the museum so late even though there was a full hour before it closes. Clearly just looking to go home early. Furthermore, when trying to buy a ticket for tomorrow, they needed my home postal code in which they insisted mine was "incorrect". My home country's postal code format is different from Germany's so I instead opted to provide the postal code of my hotel. They went out of their way to tell me that I should look up my Canadian postal code because I don't know it, I told them our format is just different but she repeatedly argued against it. She kept saying that Canadian postal codes should be 5 numbers which is just flat out wrong and got so annoyed she just said "we're done, we're closed, bye". Honestly shocked at this experience. As I was leaving, I saw that there were still people in the exhibits (as there should be, still close to an hour before closing).

one of the better modern art museums
Jul 2021
The Pinakothek der Moderne is one of the best modern art museums in Germany and housed in an architectonically appealing building. The permanent collection features many 20th century and contemporary artists, European and American. There are also several simultaneous temporary exhibitions - during our visit, there was a really fabulous exhibit on sustainable and 'social' architecture in Taiwan entitled "Taiwan acts" - this was great, and the guided tour by the curator truly inspiring....

Hidden gem of a museum
Jan 2020
This museum tucked across the street from several other museums (inlcuding the Alte Pinakothek) has a fabulous collection. It does beautiful shows in a bright lit space. Also the coffee/cafe is worth a visit for a quick pck me up and some sweets

Great place to visit with large open rooms, with well displayed and appropriate pieces.
It was a pleasant couple of hours, even if it was crazy full. Clearly the concept is good and the architecture equivalently suitable. Highly recommended.

Surprisingly good!
Dec 2019
The building was very attractive, airy, light filled with easy gallery access. The art was generally quite good, with several top German & foreign artists of the past 100 years represented. I found it a most enjoyable way to spend a morning, And it is within short walking distance of the city center.

Interesting and well organized display of artwork of all types
Dec 2019
We visited the Pinakothek der Moderne expecting to primarily see paintings and sculpture, and were pleasantly surprised to find far more. The displays also included interesting displays of autos, furniture and other modern items. Spread over four floors, we spent over half our visit winding through the well organized and interesting paintings and sculptures, many of which were documented in both English and German. While there were several school groups also in the area, the displays were spread out enough that we didn't find this distracting. I really appreciated the creativity and variety of displays. They also had a nice cafe where we were able to take a break mid-way through our visit.
