  • I found the Von Der Heydt Museum quite easily from the HauptBahnhof as it is well signposted. Inside there are various different rooms with pieces of art in them as well as a well stocked gift shop.....  more »
  • Quiet, with an eclectic mix of artists presented.
  • The collection is great but the invigilators follow you around in a ridiculous manner. Felt too uncomfortable to even see the rest of the work after being harassed by a woman who was following me at an arms length for 5 minutes and then told me off for using my phone to take notes, not photos. From such a close distance a person should be able to tell what your doing anyway. I even showed my phone to be open and reassuring and was still told off. Not worth paying in the end.
