Pinakothek der Moderne

The biggest museum for modern art in Germany is being constructed in the immediate vicinity of the Alte and Neu Pinakothek: the Pinakothek der Moderne. In this building on around 15,000 m², four outstanding collections will offer an extensive overview of fine applied arts of the 20th century right up to the present:

In addition to art, sculpture, photography and video of the Staatsgalerie moderner Kunst, Die Neue Sammlung will present itself with firstclass examples of design and handicrafts, the Architekturmuseum der Technischen Universität with architectural illustrations, photographs and models and the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung with printed graphics and precious master illustrations.

Joint alternating exhibitions and open views in the architecture of the Munich architect Stephan Braunfels will enable comprehensive looks at the arts in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Pinakothek der Moderne joins the surrounding museums to become a unique art-historical and historico-cultural ensemble, which makes the range of western culture of the past and present in its incomparable denseness and quality worth experiencing.
