This has mainly modern art (ie since late 1800s ) but is so varied that it makes up a fascinating whole. Of particular interest are the pieces acquired during the DDR era and the strict criteria used for purchasing works. The pieces had to be...More

A friend recommended that I go here even though it’s somewhat ranked low on TripAdvisor. Thank goodness I did because it was worth it. “Fun” collection with a great audio guide. Would recommend over many of the higher rated museums in town.
