Really impressed by this museum. The space itself is wonderful and the curators have done an excellent job presenting the variety of work. Even with a floor closed during our visit, we spent a full 3 hours exploring. The pieces range from as old as the 15th century to the last few decades. The museum shop had a small yet nice selection of magazines and books. Definitely a highlight of Leipzig.
It is a nice museum. I visited the Yoko Ono exhibition which was quite nice. Other than changing exhibitions there are paintings from old times. It is possible to follow a timeline between 14th century and 20th century. There are some nice paintings among them but most of them are not special. Overall the museum is worth a visit.
