The permanent exhibitions are fantastic a really interesting overview of German contemporary art. The gallery spaces are huge, light and airy with plenty of space to step back to view work. Well worth visiting if you love contemporary art.

Very nice August Macke expo in the ground floor. The museum is overall good for a medium german city. 2h are enough to see everything.

This modern art museum exceeded my expectations. It needs a solid 2-3 hours to go through everything and i especially loved the exhibitions and the architecture. Defenitely worth visiting for the modern art lover.

Mirroring a recent review of another traveller here, which I unfortunately discovered only after the visit ... The building & surroundings are very modern, definitely high quality architecture. However, the art collection was really poor - and I was really surprised to see the scarcity...More
