This is really nice, both the installations and the building. The Picasso exhibition was really interesting. Worth a visit

The collection is quite large with a decent variety in styles so your bound to find some pieces you like, spent 2 1/2 hours there and still hadn't managed to see everything. The "Labs" I thought were fun (designed really for younger audiences but I found it quite engaging non the less).
The Museum Ludwig is a must see for everyone who loves modern art. Additionally, currently a must see for Picasso lovers who want to get grip on the broader context of Picasso's work. Yes the architecture of the building makes the building hard to read, but it opens also the opportunity to discover the artwork on your own pace.
