Located close to the Rhein River and old town. The somewhat less inviting exterior of the large building and garden did not give any indication of the fantastic display of art that we would find in the interior. It could easily have been missed from...More

The museum is quite nice with good objects. But, its kind of confusing how the tour is, the object information plats is not in english and in every room there is a guard following your every step all the time at close distant.
