  • We purchased the 12 Euro ticket to visit three museums - Pinakothek de Moderme (Modern), Museum Brandhorst (Contemporary), and the Alte Pinakothek (Classical). By far, this was our least favorite...

  • Nice space. Nice and cool inside. But just to warn as there is no communication on this. What looks like a vent around the entire gallery is actually an alarm sensor…It’s not a bad idea, but it’s poorly executed here with lack of communication, especially as they also put up wires around works making it less apparent that it’s an alarm which when it goes off sounds like a fire alarm. I bet the poor staff in there are constantly having to turn the alarm off
  • The entrance on Sunday is no longer 1€. The museum is okay. The lighting inside is a little dim for me. The staff is not the friendliest. When you go inside they are always asking you to move away. Then they have these alarms that turn on when you are in a certain part. It is more like an austere place that shows art. The curator did a nice job on the future bodies exhibition but i am afraid the descriptions on the art works were a bit over the top (in English) and yes! The labels for the pieces keep you guessing where they are, sometimes they are on a totally different wall. For me it was not really worth 10€ and i would not go again. Plus, if you carry a totebag with just a small notebook, they will ‘make’ you deposit it and then you may not have change to put in the lock then you may have to go somewhere to get that change.
