With contemporary architecture and multimedia exhibition design, the Weimar Bauhaus Museum will not only be furnishing a new platform for the treasures of the oldest Bauhaus collection in the world. As of 6 April 2019, the new museum building on five levels will also be linking 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 will provide 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 will commemorate 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 will  provide more than 2,200 m² of exhibition space. The tour through eventful years in art and history will invite visitors to address the Bauhaus and its roots in the Modern movement around 1900, together with current issues in design, art, architecture and society.

The Great Opening Festival

A spectacular festival will be staged around the weekend of the opening on 6th and 7th April 2019. You will be able to enjoy concerts, performances, installations, theatre and lots more.

Admission to the Bauhaus Museum and the Weimar New Museum will be free and there will be celebration of the opening with presentations and dancing. With an open-air stage programme, a Bauhaus bazaar with refreshments and design and a number of light and sound shows, visitors will experience the new Modern movement district as a unit for the first time. >more
