  • Unfortunately the main exhibit was closed when I went but the Wagner and Marx exhibits they put on were really thought provoking and complemented each other well.

  • A beautiful space. A somewhat spartan gift shop. Sadly, most of the museum exhibits are closed due to renovation. There were only three exhibits open -- Karl Marx, Richard Wagner, and Angela Merkel. Although these were informative and interesting, it was far less than what was expected. The cafe looks nice.
  • The permanent exposition is currently closed, but the two temporary ones are pretty nice with good explanation. I would suggest to take an audio-guide however to understand the museum's exposition more.
