Pinakothek der Moderne houses four separate museums of modern art in over 22,000 sq m (5.4 acres). One museum displays items from the permanent collection of over 3,000 pieces of art from a range of genres. Another focuses on works on paper, with drawing and prints from the 15th century up to today. The architecture museum holds the largest collection of architectural drawings in Germany. At the International Design Museum Munich, see a selection of its 80,000 industrial design, graphic design, and arts and crafts holdings. Try to remember the route you take through the gallery rooms, as some visitors find the building a bit of a labyrinth.

We had enjoyable afternoon here, visiting the various exhibits of modern industrial design. The Audi wall was an impressive and novel way to enter into the automobile and motorcycle section. Make sure to stop by the coffee shop and try their pastries. Definitely worth the modest price of admission.
The staff working there was extremely kind and helpful. There have some contemporary painting, some very famous. There was two interesting temporary exhibitions, I particularly enjoyed the one on Kimy Smith. The explanation were very relevant and clever...the radio guide was also very interactive and though I don't speak German it seems they have quite a good programm for kids as I saw a couple of them running around with a big smile and a piece of paper like they were on a hunt. There are also some nice couch that allow for a rest. Only one euro on Sunday. A real treat for the eye :)
