This place is absolutely amazing, but I was really disappointed by the severe underrepresentation of people of color in the artwork. I found 4-5 pieces featuring people of color among the hundreds on display.

Great art works of the industrial age with a distinctly Teutonic slant. Most of the works shown are the artistry of Europeans, with a large number of German. Plan on taking 1 to 3 hours to take in all of the exhibits
