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.

  • It might be difficult for most of us to understand why we actually spend money to see of the things on exhibit at the Pinakothek der Moderne. Let's put aside the arguments often used against modern art museums and modern art in general. The visit to the modern art gallery of Munich is highly entertaining because the building housing it has a large collection of objects, including many that focus on industrial design. If anything the building itself is a great place to see with sweeping perspectives, remarkably impressive large staircases, soaring ceilings and light coming from different directions, but never in an overwhelming manner. This building is enough to make your visit worthwhile, irrespective of your appreciation, or lack of, of the exhibits on display.
  • The museum 🖼️ is great for interesting watchers.. There are few international artists, as well as a small exhibition of German design. A very beautiful cafe on the ground floor, and there is also a souvenir shop where you can buy books and postcards Corona measures and test center right in front of the door!
