Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Upper Bavaria / Munich / Lenbachhaus
Housed in the former residence of Franz von Lenbach, Lenbachhaus was sold to the city in 1924 by the artist's widow. Shortly after, Munich's city art collections found a home together inside the building. The exhibits map out Germany's major art movements from the 19th century to present day. The Munich Secession group's work combined Impressionism, avant-garde, and Art Nouveau to create a style completely German. View their work and others in the 19th century gallery. A gallery dedicated to the Objectivity movement continues the journey through German art history. For art created after the end of World War II, visit the Art After 1945 gallery, where experiential, conceptual, and installation art dominates. The friendly layout includes an intimate restaurant in a modern structure overlooking the museum grounds.

We were disappointed by the art collection in the museum. While the old building is beautiful to see, the art was quite limited.

A well curated and interesting gallery with a wide range of historical and contemporary artists. They unfortunately were strict on the student pricing rules and would not allow registered students, only current students the discount, unlike most other art galleries. The building was well air conditioned and had many seats throughout the exhibit. I would’ve liked to see more direction on where each exhibit started and a better map of the exhibitions. Similarly some of the first floor exhibits did not feel like they had sufficient explanations or artist introductions, specifically for Joseph Beuys exhibit. Otherwise, there was a considerable amount of English translations throughout the exhibits. Would recommend to see more local and curated art.
Welcoming staffs and well curated. Very affordable entrance fee. The route of moving along exhibition could have been planned in a more efficient way though. Completely enjoyed.
The museum is housed in two buildings, an old one and a modern wing, spanning several galleries. It has one of the most prominent collections of the Blue Rider group art, specifically many Kandinsky pieces, as well as other members of the movement.
Great museum, I spent 3.5 h there. Everybody working there was helpful and really nice. Lot to see for a good price. I got a student discount (student of art and art education). You can take photos but no flash. I recommend downloading the free app to listen to while visiting the museum and looking at the artworks.
Vibrant place with inspiring exhibition of Munich related artists. The storyline is built up nicely and gives you a deeper historical background and context to the city past. The proper house is an enchanting experience on its own and well justifies the visit even if you are not into paintings. This place also features a trendy cafe/bar/restaurant worth exploring.
