We where there on a Sunday afternoon with a 5 year old child. They get a first impression of the museum while looking at some paintings. After going trough 3 rooms the group moved in the atelier, there the kids could do some painting on three stations. Everything is very well organized. You can just step in and there is... More

Its a good space for exhibiting, but pot luck as to whether there is something on worth seeing when you go. When we went it wasn't that great - a few intriguing exhibits, but on the whole not particularly worth the visit. However a museum pass is only a few euros for the day and covers about 6 or 7...

We entered the museum on a Sunday. Very inviting small museum. They had just opened a special exhibition for Herbert Meier including his incredible collection of 500 watercolors. The same 7 euro ticket was valid for other museums as well.

Located within the old town, the museum has a small modern and contemporary art collection. However, it makes up for it by mounting interesting special exhibits, like the current "Istanbul-Freiburg" show (which by the way, also depicts the lack of freedom in Turkey).

I love this museum in Freiburg. It is charming and unexpected. It has a diverse selection of art and I have always enjoyed going there. It is a perfect activity on a rainy day and you will not have to plan a whole day to do so. As others mentioned, it is on the smaller side so if you take... More

Usually I accompany my husband to modern art galleries and find something I like to focus on. However we both failed to engage with this museum. The changing exhibitions may just mean we didn't stick lucky, but being small and only a few strange displays, it didn't hit the spot for us.

Having lived in London and Florence, our expectations might have been too high for this extremely small museum. If not for the temporary contemporary art exhibition, it would not have been worth visiting.

Exhibitions that inspire and provoke thought - and make you question "what is art?" It's the perfect balance of pushing-the-limit and retaining dignity. Worthwhile - and when you buy a ticket for the Augustine museum you get free entry into the other museums.

This is not a large collection but contains works by some of Germany's best painters of the 20th Century including remarkable works by Otto Dix.
