Never have I been so moved by a museum and the art it presents. The soul-baring artwork about death, war and sacrifice, alongside Kollwitz's heartbreaking life story moved me to tears. I highly recommend anyone visiting Berlin to come see this amazing museum.

Great exposition of this leading woman artist of german expressionism. All exhibited items are originals and valuable pieces of art and you can follow milestones in artist's life or in society which inspired and influenced her work.

Within this small four stories house, you will find a beautiful, well curated collection of Kollwitz's humane art. Käthe documented the challenges of life in Germany in the first half of the twentieth century. Her drawings are beautiful and yet haunting at the same time....More

The museum does a nice job showing how Kollwitz's life and friends impacted her work. There is an excellent exhibit of her sculptures on the top floor.

I found it weird to find her museum near Kurfurstendamm, in such a commercial district. She lived in the working class district of Prenzlauer Berg, with his husband, a doctor for the poor. Nonetheless, the museum is as interesting as Käthe Kollwitz herself, and that's...More

I knew little about Kathe Kollwitz beyond the name. Her ‘Mother and Dead Son’ is in the Neue Wache on Unter den Linden (Helmet Kohl renamed this, on German reunification, as the memorial to victims of war and dictatorship). Kollwitz lost a son to each...More

A wonderful collection of the works of Kathe Kollwitz shown over 3 floors together with loads of information and supporting material explaining her life and role in the artistic community and her personal life. A great visitor attraction
