Redesigned by Oswald Mathias Ungers in 2001, the Museum Kunstpalast is situated in the centre of Dusseldorf, directly on the river Rhine. Since its re-opening, the museum has achieved international fame with numerous high-caliber exhibitions, including MIRO, DALI, WARHOL, CARAVAGGIO, EL GRECO AND MODERNISM and GURSKY. The Museum Kunstpalast collections are also highly regarded worldwide. These include the Gallery of Paintings with the acclaimed Rubens gallery, the Department of Prints and Drawings with more than 80,000 objects, the Sculpture Collection, Department of Modern Art and Glasmuseum Hentrich, which with over 10,000 works houses the most comprehensive glass collection in Europe. The Robert Schumann Saal is also part of the Museum Kunstpalast and has made a name for itself with its own ambitious program.

This is a large museum with a fine collection for every taste. When I visited there was a small exhibition about Entartete Kunst during the Nazi era. Another section had spectacular religious woodwork from around 15th century and more. But the best collection was in...More

A great experience here at the Kunstpalast. Currently there is the Lucas Cranach the Elder exhibition which is a real to-do. I came to see the works of Caspar David Friedrich; but was pleasantly surprised by the high level of the Cranach exhibit stretching all...More

Museum Kunstpalast hosts really nice exhibitions. Even after half a dozen visits we can confirm there is a wide variety in themes of the collections, each time very successful accompanying audioguides are offered (included in entrance fee). Besides the specific exhibitions Museum Kunstpalast has a...More

I didn't go inside the museum, but I really liked to go there because I enjoyed the square in front of the museum.

I loved the Lucas Cranach exhibition, really well presented with a fascinating audioguide, and the section at the end on Cranach's influence on modern painters was brilliant. Great that photos weren't allowed - it irritates me when people snap away rather than look at the...More

We saw the exhibition 'behind the curtain', which had a great range of artists. The other galleries had fantastic paintings, which we assume were permanently on display. I did not expect to be blown away by so much of the work in the glass museum,...More

We loved it. The glass collection was the best, from earliest utilitarian pieces to modern art exhibits. Almost a small museum in it's own right. Check out the current visiting exhibition as well, and if you like the sound of that, it's worth a visit.

After the K20 museum, I thought this was the other interesting art museum in Dusseldorf. The layout as some have mention is a bit odd, but nothing to dampen the experience. For me the highlights included the Modern Art, with works by Kirchner, Marc, Dix,...More
