“A modern museum full of art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We visited this museum last week and enjoyed the sight of Kirchner's paintings. An exhibition of Lisl Ponger, a Viennese artist was on display too! We enjoyed the visit and may return on our next visit to Davos. Indeed 50 paintings by Kirchner were not in the museum as temporarily exposed in Munich, Germany.

“An enjoyable small gallery, worth visiting for an hour ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

It seems like there is very little to do in Davos if you aren't skiing. This little museum is worth a visit.

The building itself is modern and concrete with clean lines. There are well-written English panels alongside German.

It features works by Kirchner, with whom I was not familiar. I enjoyed the works, which feature alpine scenes in striking colours and in a minimalist style. There is an excellent biographical video in English and German.

A lot of hanging space was actually dedicated to George Baselitz.

The entry was CHF 14. There are free lockers and guest wifi.

You should be done in an hour.

“Fantastic artwork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Enjoyed this museum. When I went they had folks explaining the history of the museum and artists. They have an interactive exhibit where kids can create artwork and learn about aspects of art.

“A matter of taste”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

I guess you're either excited by Kerchner's impressionist style or left a little cold. The museum houses a couple of dozens of his paintings, sketches. and a wood carving. Also a small exhibition of photos by Danish artist Ebbe Stub Wittrup (until November 2013).
