The Museum Brandhorst is a contemporary art collection that opened in 2009. It was previously privately held by patrons Udo and Anette Brandhorst who have been gracious enough to share their cultural treasures with the city of Munich and its visitors.
The building itself is covered in ceramic pieces that resemble an artist’s pastels – twenty three different colors decorate the facade, which make it appear slightly abstract. It is nice to stroll past at various points through the day to see how the light creates a distinctive, yet beautiful interactive piece of architecture. It certainly beckons people to visit the impressive collection.
The museum also features a café and book store, as well as tours and workshops.
Thursdays the museum is open until 20:00.
If you are short on cash or don’t mind dealing with the crowds, you can also visit on Sunday when the reduced admission is only € 1.
The current exhibition includes a room installation from Cady Nolan and British concept artist Gillian Wearing.
