This art museum was really excellent for a small provincial town. The museum building itself used to be a bank and had some wonderful art deco features still intact. A sympathetic interior modernisation had been carried out to fit the various floors in. However, all the labels are in German and there is nothing at all in any other language.... More

Very well executed showcasing the cultural evolution of the Dortmund area. I have visited many museums in my life, from the Smithsonian, NY Met, to PA's Ben Franklin and countless others, this one ranks high for keeping us interested and entertained by it's showing! It is not that there was so much world variety, on the contrary this Museum stays... More

The museum on 5 floors has got a lot to offer - German paintings till 1900, with Liebermann, Slevogt, Corinth, Friedrich. There are a lot to see from the antiquity to the modern designs.

The museum is opened till 8pm on Thursday so I decided to give this a shot after work. Close to Dortmund central station on the southern side. Entrance was 5€ to see the permanent exhibition. Start from the bottom if you want to visit the exhibits in chronological order. Nothing was in English but I had a German colleague with... More

Plenty to go at here - four floors of artifacts and art. The collections might seem a little random, or that the musuem is trying to cover too much but therein lies it's charm. In one gallery are prehistoric flints in another some wonderful twentieth century homewares. The building is also gorgeous and costs €8 to see everything in it.... More
