Owner description: This huge art museum specializes in European painting. The historic building itself is worth the price of admission.

It's an awesome museum. I unexpectedly ran into 'The Wanderer Above a Sea of Fog' and sitting down admiring it was one of the very best museum-moments of my life.

A diverse collection of classical and modern paintings, with interesting expositions. The way the paintings are presented is of high quality. For me, the building had a difficult lay out, but could find (in the end) the objects I wanted to see.

Unless you are really into art or an art student wanting to get up close to a particular original work, this gallery is just not worth a visit for the casual tourist visitor. It is dull, boring, badly laid out, poorly signposted and most of the works poorly lit in rooms painted silly colours.
There are plenty of far more enjoyable and entertaining things to see in Hamburg.

The Breughel collection alone is worth the visit (there are nine of them!). They have a fair photo policy and lighting on most pictures adequate for amateur photographers. Only down side (and it is a big one for older people like myself - mid-70s) is that gallery should have seats available in all galleries so one can study the art without discomfort.

Never leave Hamburg without visiting this museum. Lots to see, old and new. Easy to find just behind Hauptbahnhof. You can also buy coffee/ tea and cakes. But go to the railwaystation for lunch!
