Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig

The Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig was opened on 4 December, 2004. Having previously been housed elsewhere on an ‘interim’ basis for 61 years, one the most important civic collections in Germany once again has its own home. It is the first new art museum building in former East Germany since 1945. The inclusion of the museum in the ‘Blaubuch’ commissioined by the Federal Government that lists cultural institutions of national importance reflects the museum’s status and that of its collections.

The interior of the museum building combines a classical museum architecture with high, cubic terraces and atriums that stretch upwards over several storeys. The four entrances pointing in all directions of the compass and the large windows open the museum up to the city.

The collections that include masterpieces from the 15th to 21st centuries, as well as temporary exhibitions, are presented in an area covering more than 75,000 square feet.
