Sprengel Museum Hannover reviews
It was nice, I just wish that I would have known upfront that the basement was closed. I would also suggest creating more sitting areas for the disabled/old/pregnant/tired people amongst us.

Gallery was really good with a nice collection of contemporary art but unfortunately at the time of our visit the basement gallery was being changed over. It didn’t stop us enjoying our visit...

Paid 4 euros for entry as some exhibitions were under construction. For that price you should go for sure. The stuff was extremely helpful and could speak English. I put 4 stars because the exhibitions were limited. I manly liked the photography one. You can see in my review plenty of photos from that exhibition. There were desks where you can sit and chill with plenty of photobooks.
Overall it was a good museum. However, the staff were not very helpful. Unfortunately, the English documents were insufficient, I would like more detailed information about the museum and collections. Maybe I'm the problem, we went at the wrong collection time.
Sprengel Museum is a museum of modern art in Hanover, Lower Saxony, holding one of the most significant collections of modern art in Germany. It is located in a building situated adjacent to the Masch Lake approximately 150 metres south of the state museum. The museum opened in 1979, and the building, designed by Peter and Ursula Trint and Dieter Quast , was extended in 1992. Bernhard Sprengel donated his extensive collection of modern art to the city of Hanover in 1969, as well as financially supporting the construction of the museum. The city of Hanover and the state of Lower Saxony agreed to operate the museum jointly. In addition to the works donated by Sprengel, the museum also houses 20th century artworks owned by Lower Saxony and Hanover.
Excellent collection, well presented. Friendly helpful staff. We went on a Friday, with our discount card ready, and found it was free entry on Fridays. Had a nice lunch on the terrace with a view of the rowing lake.
The museum overall has a newly build vibe to it, clean and well maintained. The exhibition and art inside the museum is bit off my taste of what a “museum” experience might be. It’s full of paintings and abstract art etc . 30-40% of the museum was under renovation and the overall layout of the museum was frankly quite consuming; a maze but not quite a fun maze (?) approach. The entry fees is 7 euros usually but Monday’s are closed and Fridays are free. I did go on Friday so the experience was moderately positive, however I would not pay 7 euro for this type of museum.
