Reviewed 25 February 2014

We go almost every year to one of the very nice exhibitions in Bonn. this time it was better because the text was not only in German, but also in English. if the catalogue had been availab le in English I would have bought it, but although we can read German, it's not always that easy, so the 39€ was a bit steep.

From ancient Egypt to Hollywood the exhibit explores the legend of Cleopatra with hieroglyphics, artist impressions, theater, music, and garden flowers. Somehow it all works to make for a wonderful experience at the museum. The garden on the roof top is lovely with lots of fragrance.

The staff at the Kunstmuseum suggested to also visit the Cleopatra exhibition next door in the Kunsthalle, so we did. But after the intellectually challenging journey trough the history of 20th century German art in the former, the latter proved to be a lightweight. The exhibition consisted out of a thematic collection of several items and pictures centering around the Egyptian queen, more or less divided in historic periods and mediums used (sculpture, tapestry, painting, advertisement, film, etc). What we did find interesting was the presented evolution of Cleopatra's image through the centuries and the shifting emphases on different elements of her legacy and the mythical sphere which grew around her person, but otherwise there was little to be learned and the exhibition slightly missed serious content or a deeper thought.

Information stands in both German and English. No photographs allowed inside.

Great location which usually has excellent shows. The exhibition about the Irokese Indians however, though interesting, lacks somewhat in the experience quality. The topic no doubt is attractive for children, unfortunately the way the items are displayed relies heavily on written text for context.
The long house is the exception and, especially when the weather is warm, offers a very palpable experience of life in a natural environment, full of smells and textures.
