Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-westfalen - Review
Located at the alstadt (old town), the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen is a fine example of why Dusseldorf has such a thriving art scene. Spanning across three buildings (K20, K21 and Schmela Haus) each building has its own distinguishing identity, whilst coming together to form an art phenomenon that is highly regarded beyond borders.
The K20 Grabbeplatz A has some exquisite exhibits that cover not only the turn of the 20th century, but also the arc and then some! If there’s one museum the art world is envious and awe-struck at the same time, it’s the K20 Grabbenplatz. The sheer number of artists represented on the walls is mind-numbing and whether you’re an art enthusiast or not, your appreciation will know no bounds.
The K21 Ständehaus A on the other hand features art that’s graced the Earth after the 1980s. The 19th century parliament building the K21 Ständehaus A is housed is, balances out the vibrancy the art exhibits exude. Staying with the trends of those times, the museum has a vast collection of not only paintings but also photographs, installations and video art.
When the Schmela Haus was first opened in 1971, it was a private gallery. The works of a Dutch architect Aldo van Eyck, is now an architectural landmark of Dusseldorf, grey pumice and all. Now a part of the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, the Schmela Haus is now a space allotted for experimental art.

Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-westfalen, Dusseldorf Reviews
Liked the place. Some good paintings in their collection. The place has a very chilled vibe. Go here to spend a Sunday morning
Nice but not so big Museum, liked it. (paul klee, picasso, braque, mondriaan, rotkho)
Couldn't consider the artwork - too busy being dogged by the staff, who had something new to tell us off for every five minutes, and when they weren't telling us off for holding a jersey, or (how dare we!) looking too closely at the artworks, were breathing down our necks waiting to pounce on us for breaking another poorly defined rule. Draw some lines on the floor so people literally know where they stand, and find better ways of protecting your art than creating such a hostile, confrontational atmosphere.
