The museum rooms are temporarily closed

Dear visitors,
our museum is to become more ecological!
Due to the necessary constructional and conceptual measures, in particular an energetic renovation of the current building, the exhibition rooms will be closed until the end of 2023

Nevertheless, we will still be there for you!


We look forward to welcoming you to our pop-up space RAUM FÜR NEUES: In the Neumarkt Passage, opposite the Tentazioni ice cream cafe, we will gradually present what we are working on for you behind the scenes during the closure.

But that's not all: we offer readings, talks and lectures - and our museum workshop! Here you can get active yourself. We invite children, young people and adults to workshops on a wide variety of topics and techniques. 
Our pop-up museum shop is also open - with literature by and about Käthe Kollwitz, exhibition catalogues, postcards, art prints and posters.

Please have a look!

Opening hours
Tuesday to Saturday 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Thursday 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Closed on Mondays, Sundays, public holidays and carnival.
Admission free!

Experience Käthe Kollwitz!

Soon there will be even more to see. ›Experience Käthe Kollwitz!‹ is the motto under which we will present the collection exhibition in a new way in the future: from a virtual studio of the artist to analogue and digital background information on the life and work of Käthe Kollwitz to interactive offers that allow you to understand her artistic techniques. You can get a foretaste of this in the RAUM FÜR NEUES.

In addition, we will keep providing you with new interesting content and varied digital offers on our website and social media channels during the closure period.

Stay tuned!
