This museum showcases a small but stellar collection of sculpture on the ground floor. (many more sculptures are jumbled behind glass in the entry hall--apparently the exhibit is chosen from a much larger collection.) The included audio guide is thoughtful. A short visit to the sculpture gallery gives a visitor a mini-guide to modern sculpture right up the the present, with some fun interactive installations at children would like. The lobby cafe is lovely, not crowded, and great for a break before tackling the excellent modern painting gallery. The same audio guide is excellent at explaining the paintings and the development of modern art especially in Germany. Paintings begin with Romantic landscapes and move on through Gaugin, Monet, Manet, Van Gogh and others, all represented by high-quality work. There are especially stunning pieces by Max Lieberman and Oscar Kokoschka. The triptych "War" by Otto Dix reminds one of Picasso's "Guernica," as an indictment of war. Anyone interested in art will spend a coup,e of absorbing hours at the Albertinum.
