Knowing something of the history of the Bauhaus and Weimar, I was looking forward to visiting the Bauhaus. It was smaller than I had imagined. I didn't learn anything which I did not know from previous studies.

This is a small but very good collection of artefacts, photos and posters of this movement in architecture and interior design. I was very happy to see the cradle that featured in Neil McGregor's series "Germany, memories of a nation".

i'm sure the new museum will be a big improvement on this endeavour. but the current establishment is somewhat uninspired and very constrained. too many other things to see in Weimar to stop here i'm afraid.
