The new arrangement is a masterwork. Allowed lots of time as the details are fascinating.
Although we came for the Tod Und Teufel exhibition, we were very impressed with the works of Cornelius Völker. Beautiful and intense, wonderfully visceral textures and vivid brush work. Highly evocative pictures. If you visit the Kunstpalast for.. Read more » Tod Und Teufel (and you definitely should), do not skip CV's exhibition.
Very beautiful place! on the way to the Kunstpalast are absolutely beautiful flowers and once you're inside it looks rather modern compared to the outside.

Ranging from fashion to music to greek mythology and taking death with a bit of humor. If you are a fan of a bit more gruesome, gorey and out of the box art i can recommend Death and The Devil. Personally i didn't think it was very scary but very interesting to see how different artists express death. 👍
We came in here when having seen a poster advertising Tod und Teufel - Faszination Des Horrors. Really enjoyed the exhibition.
Museum Kunstpalast is one of the prime art museums in Dusseldorf. The permanent exhibition as well as the temporary exhibitions are worth a visit. Parts of the complex are currently under renovation. The pictures are from my visit for White Night 202.. Read more »3. It is good destination all year round.

Art to see! 💥💚 Nice place, cafeteria inside, some renovation outside, but no problems with walking arround

A very busy Sunday visit. I enjoyed the exhibits and the little souvenir shop.
Definitely a great museum, the arts are great but it might be a little crowded in the weekends.
We visited the museum for the Christo & Jeanne-Claude exhibition, and we enjoyed everything. The curation and organization of the exhibition, the staff, the different facilities, and the cafe.
Really modern feeling museum. Visited to see Christo, which was presented brilliantly. Good value and the the facilities were excellent.
I came to Düsseldorf just to see the Rubens. The permanent collection of Kunstpalast is closed until God knows when. This crucial information was nowhere to be found on the website or on the exterior of the building (where pictures of the Rubens.. Read more » painting are displayed). At least they gave me a refund.

Fairly interesting exhibition (Christo), with explanations in English. However, the price is quite steep for such a small exhibition, and the other rooms were all closed.

Nice museum, modern and spacious layout. Went there for the electronic music expo, really enjoyed it!
beautifully decorated inside, the exhibition was great and very interesting. I recommend
Worth a visit! Better book your tickets online!
Very fine Liebermann exhibition. Ordering tickets online, particularly for weekends, is highly recommended
Great exibition place to visit.
Just super. Cements Düsseldorf as a great city for art. Good for tourists and locals alike.
Great place to enjoy art, they constantly have new instalation

Nice exhibitions, but the price is a bit high, comparing to other museums
I visited Peter Lindberg exhibition. Amazing! The problem was the people who worked at the museum. No one told where to go to the exhibition. No signs. We spent 10 min going up and down the stairs. The waiter at the cafe was rude.
Great place to discover renowned artists!
Price of entry was around 14 euros a person which was on the higher end, but this included three exhibitions worth of content to browse.
Facilities were oddly quiet due to covid measures but all well worth the experience nonetheless.

It's definitely worth it to visit.
The only problem: it's pretty expensive if you're not a student or under 18.
Also bring a lot of time with you, because it takes much to explore the whole museum, but it's a good investment of time!
I have only seen good works of art here. Each and every time it’s been inspiring. The curators put a lot of work in these exhibits!

You can take pictures in the museum. Do not stand too close to the art or the security will get a heart-attack. They will follow you around, there is not much to do I guess. In each corner is a camera pointing at you, but that is not enough. I expect this in the Louvre or something, so they are overprotective over here.
With nice weather you can take a sit on a beach chair around the fountain in the courdyard, like in Paris.
We did the permanent exhibition: 5€ (only ?) and we had access to an amazing gallery full of great artists from various periods!
