Although the Museum architecture by Gropius is nice the exhibition is tiny and the staff is abusive.
This is a very disappointing experience and visitors generally leave the place in anger.
The museum store has more bauhaus information than the exhibition!
The staff is very abusive, doesn't want to speak english and yells at visitors and gets physical. The historical Bauhaus Archive exhibition is in one room that's only roughly a 10th of the area of the Museum. A temporary show that has nothing to do with Bauhaus or Archive at all is bigger than the historical display. The prices are too high and itsVERBOTEN to take pictures! It would be best to visit for the architecture and the shop only but leave the exhibition behind. Although the architecture of the Museum and Archive was built roughly according to Gropius plans for the museum in Darmstadt, the way it was set in place creates a very confusing and unpleasant entrance to the building. In fact nothing of Gropius plans were actually carried out here, the only thing that resembles Gropius design is the silhouette of the building. Vey sad to see a poorly run museum like this in a world capital. Very disappointing for the bauhaus movement fans of the world.
