Die Stiftung Museum Kunstpalast wurde 1998 von der Stadt Düsseldorf und der E.ON AG (bis 2017 Stiftungspartner) gegründet. Von 2000 bis 2011 in der Schreibweise museum kunst palast, seit Ende 2018 als KUNSTPALAST benannt, führte die Stiftung das Kunstmuseum inklusive Glasmuseum Hentrich, den Kunstpalast und den Robert-Schumann-Saal in ihrer Trägerschaft zusammen. Seit 2020 gehört auch das NRW-Forum zum Kunstpalast.
This is one of the most gloomy and labyrinthine museum I have ever been. The collection is big but has only a few top pieces. There is a giant Rubens painting Venus und Adonis which is amazing. If you have the time there is something worthwhile to find there. The coffee shop is great.
Wonderful! The Glass Museum was excellent too . Collections from ancient to modern were amazing. A must see if visiting Dusseldorf. Visited on a Thursday afternoon, early November, and barely anyone there. Made it a pleasurable experience feeling like you had the museum all to yourself. If using Dusseldorf card there's reduced admission charge.
It's a very interesting place, where you can find a huge collection of masterpieces. Also there are temporary collections that also are very interesting.
Beautiful museum, nice café. Fantastic collection of art.
Decent permanent collection from a wide period of history plus a small permanent contemporary collection and all the staff I dealt with were very nice.
We only visit the Black and White exebition, which was a real experience. We especially liked the room with only one colour and the room in greyscale was worth the visit. They had a booklet which made the exposition interactive for children. We did not have time to visit the rest of the exposition. But we would certainly come back when we are back in Dusseldorf.
The Rambrant room is impressive and also the Black and White temporary expo, specially the Grey room it really needs to be "felled", if you visit take your time there you can sit down for a bit an get immersed in this colour free atmosphere like if you were inside a black and white movie
I have been visiting this place, few years back for the Wim Wenders photography exhibition, it was one of worst museum experience. First start with long queue and slow process ticket desk, there was no organize at the front desk at all. The exhibition hall was crowded like a Christmas market, the organizer just keep let people in without any control. The photo exhibition was the worst curated I have ever seen. The photos was just randomly put there, there was not organize at all. Museum collection is a joke. No reason to spend time or money there. P.S the gardening outside the museum is a joke too, lack of sense of beauty, vulgar.
Saw black and white there, extremely well curated exhibition. Been there before for Katharina Grosse and other exhibition and was never disappointed. Kunstpalast does colossal stuff.
I loved the permanent exhibition, and the building itself. I felt followed by the extreme amount of security staff though.
