Weimar Bauhaus Museum

With its contemporary architecture and multimedia exhibition design, the Bauhaus Museum Weimar not only furnishes a new platform for the treasures of the oldest Bauhaus collection in the world. The new museum building on five levels also links Weimar Bauhaus history with questions of lifestyle in the present and future. As a venue for meetings and frank discussion in a newly developed town district, it provides contemporary perspectives on the ambivalent reception of the Modern movement from its beginnings until today.

Exhibition: "The Bauhaus comes from Weimar"

In the town where the Staatliche Bauhaus was founded, the museum commemorates the early Weimar phase of the 20th century's most important college of art and design. The Weimar Classic Foundation owns the world's oldest Bauhaus collection, started by Walter Gropius as early as 1925. For the collection which meanwhile boasts 13,000 items, the new museum building provides more than 2,200 m² of exhibition space. The tour through eventful years in art and history invites visitors to address the Bauhaus and its roots in the Modern movement around 1900, together with current issues in design, art, architecture and society.
