The art installations here are separate entities and therefore priced individually. This could prove costly if you wanted to see everything as there was no "all in one" ticket available. This was not made clear when we entered also.

After heading into the museum, not knowing what to expect, and wandering around for a while, I came across a music exhibition and must have spent a good couple of hours watching videos, playing with the interactive displays, and listening to a diverse range of great music. It was a great place to spend an afternoon.

Worth noting: the museum is no longer located at Ostwall 7. Great selection of contemporary artists. Interactive exhibitions are really well-thought.

This museum is a must see if you like contemporary art and ideas. It also has a few great Picasso 's. We saw the 'industrial' exhibition which incorporated some interesting perceptions about the world finance ecology and de-instrialisation. Anyway it was challenging. Allow a good couple of hours. The U building is close to the train station and you can... More

Dortmund is not a major travel destination in Germany: it's known more for its football and beer rather than culture. The Museum am Ostwall has moved into a former 1920s beer brewery that has been thoroughly modernized and is on a ring road at the edge of the city. It's not the most inspiring location. The museum is part of... More

Website says Paul Klee stuff there. 6 year old has studied Klee at school and is therefore excited about visit. Ask staff where the Klee is. They have none! Somewhat disappointed.
