The first room was a room filled with strange sounds and everyday things. It was fun to look around, experiencing a wide array of modern day art. Ranging from the truely activating art, to modern "it's just a few squares" art.

I really liked this place, the installation I assisted to was interactive and very interesting. I was not expecting much but was gladly surprised. This is a place to spend a Saturday or a rainy day.

This museum is a must see if you like contemporary art and ideas. It also has a few great Picasso 's. We saw the 'industrial' exhibition which incorporated some interesting perceptions about the world finance ecology and de-instrialisation. Anyway it was challenging. Allow a good...More

Dortmund is not a major travel destination in Germany: it's known more for its football and beer rather than culture. The Museum am Ostwall has moved into a former 1920s beer brewery that has been thoroughly modernized and is on a ring road at the...More

Website says Paul Klee stuff there. 6 year old has studied Klee at school and is therefore excited about visit. Ask staff where the Klee is. They have none! Somewhat disappointed.
