Museum Ludwig Reviews
I was attracted by nice reviews, but I've been real impressed by the contents. Andy Warhol, De Chirico, Magritte, Dalí, Duchamp, Picasso... more and more. Thanks for the collection... more »
Though the interior is interesting and the museum has a lot to offer, the taste was not to my liking. Personal opinion I suppose. Overall recommendable. more »
I liked the shapes of the museum which seemed to be designed to get as much as sunlight. However the museum is not well managed in the perspective of user friendliness. There are no arrows or guidances telling visitors where to see next. Some pictures are described in German only, and even some pictures don’t have their name tag. There is an audio guide, but neither any staff told me nor any signs informed that.
The museum is really pedagogic with a lot of texts giving some art history insights which can appreciated by some. But what I truly disliked is the strong presence of the guard, making me feel tracked everywhere i went. I don’t know if my profile is discriminated but they should do an effort to make it more welcoming in the future.
