Pinakothek der Moderne houses four separate museums of modern art in over 22,000 sq m (5.4 acres). One museum displays items from the permanent collection of over 3,000 pieces of art from a range of genres. Another focuses on works on paper, with drawing and prints from the 15th century up to today. The architecture museum holds the largest collection of architectural drawings in Germany. At the International Design Museum Munich, see a selection of its 80,000 industrial design, graphic design, and arts and crafts holdings. Try to remember the route you take through the gallery rooms, as some visitors find the building a bit of a labyrinth.

  • Always a favorite. The current exhibition on the Olympic Games 1972 in Munich in the architecture department is really well structured and interesting. And I don't get tires of the design section no mater how often I see it. Sundays are €1 entry for the entire house and all permanent or temporary exhibitions.
  • While I thought the entrance fee of 10€ was fair (or at least the norm here), at least 5 rooms were being rearranged and visitors could not enter to see those rooms. Why is anyone paying full price if a signifixant portion of the museum is off limits? I also had to check in my backpack. But as a tourist I would like my valuables to be with me at all times, so I had a very tiny tote that could fit only my wallet and a thin scarf. One guard told me that was okay as long as I didn't carry water. Subsequently I got some stares from the other guards, which was annoying, but no one else stopped me until I got to the last exhibit before the gift shop. The guard would not let me in at all despite me trying my best to explain that someone else told me it was fine. Besides, what am I gonna do with a small tote bag? The guard could not (or would not) understand my English. Since it was the last exhibit and the day was coming to an end, I didn't bother. All I have to say is that this is the worst museum experience I've had in Germany. This place could do a lot more to be friendly to tourists, otherwise just it should just market itself only to locals and German speakers.
