I visited this museum while my sister was staying with me in Düsseldorf and we hoped to do something pleasant for the afternoon. The art work was very average and the staff were extremely rude, unpleasant, antagonizing and aggressive. It was a very uncomfortable experience....More

K21 is a spacious art space that allows its curators to experiment with ideas. The art of Tomas Saraceno called "in orbit" gives you that feeling. Walking on a flexible steel wire mesh gives one the impression of flying. The large spheres could be clouds,...More

Amazing space, with super informative attendants, some were more like curators. The top floor has a steel mesh structure, quite fun to go on.

The main appeal of the gallery is their amazing exhibit, 'In Orbit', where you can balance high over the piazza on a steel net. The design was inspired by a spiders web and it was very visually spectacular when we walked in. We looked around...More

This museum is FUN! The internal courtyard has fine old architectural details and installation-type exhibits but the huge glass roof has a net underneath where adults can become children again and bounce around 30 metres above the floor! I LOVED it!

The two museums are on opposite ends of Dusseldorf. The travel time takes about 30 minutes including wait time and possible traffic. If you assume 2 hours per museum, you should reserve at least 5 hours to do both.

Reduced fee for students ( need to show student ID) 10€, for children is 2,5 and 12 € for adults ( if there is a temporary exhibition ) but you get good value for the money !
