Interesting complementary exhibition to the actual Bauhaus a couple streets further off. Glass cube façade opposite the old post office building makes for an architectural juxtaposition. The inside museum is well structured and walls you through the Bauhaus history with well explained description of the exhibits. A great collection worth a visit!
Huge building but the ground floor is empty but souvenirs. Not so much inspirational things, products, architecture, painting are not well organized. And tbh, it is just some unwanted "history" (maybe "gossip" is more accurate) about the design and school. We may say that nowadays design and arts stand on the giant shoulder, but this giant is really outdated. I would say the tickets price should be 4 Euro other than 8.5 Euro. All the exhibition in Germany universities are better and for free after all. And most important! The ground material is very unfriendly to gummy shoes! Squeezing noise for every step!
