Having seen a programme on the History Channel about this gallery, I wanted to see it for myself. The building dates from 1933-1936, and replaced a glass gallery that burned down in 1931. It was built on the orders of Adolf Hitler to exhibit the...More

The building itself is very impressive, it is a fantastic piece of architecture. However, the inside is a total waste of time! They charge £10 for an adult entrance to see basically 3 rooms of Modern art- if you can even call it that. I...More

This building had an air raid shelter in the basement, and the video art exhibit that was there in September was in those rooms. Each room had a different video displayed, some of which were unusual and some were extraordinarily unusual! We thoroughly enjoyed the...More

The building is located close to the Englischer Garten and is very imposed, but is beautiful, as well as being cavernous on the inside. The admission price was very reasonable, and was reduced for students. The installations inside were numerous but well-spaced - art wasn't...More

This museum was near our Airbnb. The building was very interesting and we enjoyed some of the exhibits especially a multi media sculpture in the entry lobby. The museum is near the English Garden and the Eisbach Wave.

Contemporary art isn't good topic to explication: you have to see and to feel it by yourself. It's totally worth of spending there more than 2-3 hours.

I suppose one of the best ways to gauge whether a museum is up to par or not is how long you spend inside. My friend and I spent half an afternoon in here! We were unsure of what we wanted to do on this...More

Constructed during the Nazi era, the building displays the typical architecture of the era. It now houses an art museum and will be of interest to art lovers.

This was my first time visiting Haus der Kunst, a contemporary art museum with revolving exhibitions. Before coming here, I did my homework and checked their website to see if there was something that interested me. I would encourage you to do the same. Contemporary...More

We saw the Kiki Smith exhibition in Febraury. The building itself is worth seeing and its history is made clear in a permanent exhibition. It was built to house the Nazi's 'art' and now it houses modern art - exactly the opposite of its intention....More
