I got an audio guide in English which is really good but some of the numbers on the exhibits were missing! As the museum was really quiet it sort of added to the fun trying to find the correct exibit for the commentary!. I ended...More

We visited principally to see the applied arts collection from the art nouveau to the present which is outstanding. The building from the 1920s is also of high quality and has been very well restored, for example the recently restored Josef Albers windows which are...More
