This is part of the museum but entrance to the café is not dependent on being a visitor to the museum. The staff were not particularly friendly and the interior was rather bare. Food quality was reasonable but expensive and the selection was not extensive....More

Great exhibition at the Museum Barberini. However don’t expect a complete collection of Richter’s work. The museum itself is well looked after and a fine place to host exhibitions.
