“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The degenerate art exhibit is fascinating as others have written. The permanent collection is limited in gallery space, but for those who like Klimt, Shiele, etc, is worth the admission price. I went on a Saturday afternoon when there was a public tour, which covered both the permanent collection as well as the special exhibition - this was well presented and informative.

“To find the soul of souls lost and found once again”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had the honor of attending the "Degenerate Art" exhibition at the Neue Galerie New York. Located on the corner of 86th Street and 5th Avenue, just diagonal to the Metropolitan Museum. We can not stress how much we strongly suggest that everyone attends this Galeries permanent and temporary works of art. The world needs to know and understand it's past to be able to avoid such atrocities in the future. The show is on until the beginning of September and we are going to make it a second viewing next month as well. It will touch your soul and rip it out at the very same moment. Please spread the word to anyone you know who is visiting NYC in the next month and a half.

“A hidden jewel”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

The Neue has an amazing permanent collection of Austrian art. Just saw the Decadent Art exhibit from the Nazi era. Interestingly arranged and so fascinating to see after all these years. It is well worth the trip to this upper east side treasure.

“Always a treat.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Whenever we visit NYC we try to visit the Neue because they always have interesting exhibits and their permanent collection featuring Klimt, Schiele and Hoffmann is excellent. The current exhibit on Degenerate Art - the Nazi Attack on Modern Art - is, as are all of the Neue exhibits, extensive and well curated. The gallery shop has a wonderful selection of books and gift items. If it isn't already, add the Neue to your list of museums to visit as soon as possible.

“Degenerate art review is eye opening.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I read a book about Klimt's painting of Adele Bloch-Bauer & wanted to see it. It is wonderful. However the Neue Galerie Degenerate Art exposition is equally compelling. I highly recommend it.
