I can never figure out what people see in visiting an Art museum. I suppose they have their place, but I easily get bored. I suppose if you knew the artist or knew the subject of his/her work, then you have a personal connection. For...More

The Philip Johnson gem of a building is unique in Germany and if you are in the area, worth a stop. It's a Kunsthalle, so a place for smart, temporary exhibitions. A varied display of contemporary sculptures on the front lawn and sides.
