  • Great exhibition on commissioned art in Third Reich and after exploring continuance of purpose. Awesome building. Original museum building is undergoing renovation.
  • A beautifully arranged museum! Learning German history with objects in the museum can be great, especially for people who are younger than me. When buying your ticket, I recommend that you cut more for 8 euros and buy it from the voice guide device.
