This is a spacious collection, with so much great art that it’s hard to take in all it has to offer. An enormous collection of works by Paul Klee. Opens your eyes to see his development over the years and decades. A must. But lots...More

The museum has spacious galleries with, like in so many museums, bits and pieces of different artists. When I visited there was an interesting exhibition "Art et Liberté" about the surrealist movement before WW2 in Egypt with many paintings, prints and photographs. Don't miss the...More

Only the second floor was open when we visited but we really enjoyed the gallery's main collection. The audio guide was helpful. We also enjoyed the quirky cafe for coffee. It had some lovely books to look through and funky furniture as well.

Otto Dix is presented in this exhibition to be an excellent artist with a turbulent life. He fought in the First World War in the trenches on the German side and was very unable to forget this ever. His graphics on this war are marvelous...More

Both the permanent collection and the temporary Otto Dix exhibition are phenomenal. This is the only place in the world to see two of Kandinsky's compositions (IV and X) under one roof but that's only the tip of the iceberg. The Portrait of the Dancer...More

I didn't expect it to be that rich with modern art. They have some very worldwide known paintings. You can easily spend hours here. It was not too busy, so we had time to enjoy every piece. Otto Fix exhibition starts as of 11 Feb.

I first visited K21. I can say that it was a bit too modern for me as I prefer late 19th to early 20th century art, but it was still quite enjoyable. I made sure that I had the combo ticket and instead of waiting...More

We visited the K20 and, although not massive fans of modern art, we enjoyed many of the paintings. The visit was somewhat spoilt by the surly staff who insisted that we stand at a metre from the paintings or an alarm would go off. If...More

Can't believe we almost overlooked this art gallery; it doesn't get the publicity it warrants. It has a huge tick list of German expressionists and American 20C artists. Well presented to show off each piece properly, be it widely spaced in huge rooms, or side...More

There are three houses that fall under the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen banner, this one on Grabbeplatz 5, is known as K20. You can, as I did buy a combined ticket for K20 and K21. A free shuttle is available to transport you from one museum to...More
