What people are saying:

A great art gallery. I was living in Desseldorf, and after some investigation, I thought it was worth a visit. I am really happy. Essen is a sleepy coal mining town, and you would not doubt that there are such excellent galleries here. The train is easy. It takes about 30 minutes, about every 20 minutes, and costs 23 Euros. 15 minutes walk from the station. Make sure you take the right exit-pay attention to the Folk King Museum sign at the station. It goes uphill to the corridor and downhill to the back. It's almost a straight road from the station, but you need to go slightly to the right. The gallery is amazing both inside and outside, with plenty of light and plenty of space. I went there on a Sunday. There were few people there, but it was much quieter than a comparative gallery in a big city. They asked Maria Rasniger and Gerhard Richter to review their experiences-this is not my main tea, but it is worth seeing, especially Rasniger. But the star attractions are permanent collections covering the 19th and 20th centuries, including four stunning late Van Goghs and more. The permanent collection is free, but the cost of two temporary exhibitions is 10 euros, and the cost of an excellent audio guide is 4 euros. I wandered happily for 5 hours. The main collection is widely placed in two connected concentric rectangles. It's easy to miss the room/painting, for example, I only saw Super August Mike's painting on the fifth circle. The staff are generally friendly, especially the staff at the reception desk, but there are one or two staff who are too attentive. For example, a female gallery attendant yelled at me in German and said that I did not hold the folding seats in the prescribed way (stacked Near the entrance for anyone to ride). On the way back, there is a very nice local park, in Hughesnaly, near the Philharmonic Hall. It was a sunny day, so it is good to lie there for an hour before catching the train back to Düsseldorf. I am very happy that I learned about the gallery and worked hard.
