Attractive far beyond the borders of Westphalia: the LWL Museum of Art and Culture in Münster is an important regional identity builder. Between the Middle Ages and the contemporary avant-garde, visitors can immerse themselves in the world of art and experience the "magic of the original" live. The extensive art education and cultural programme also continually opens up new perspectives on art and cultural history for visitors.
The building is also impressive: the new building with its sandstone façades on all four sides fits in perfectly with the Münster cityscape and conveys openness in all directions - also through the large glass façades. Spacious and at the same time clearly arranged, the interior leaves enough space to indulge in art without losing the overview.
The exhibitions at the LWL Museum of Art and Culture have been delighting visitors since the museum opened. Renowned artists, unusual perspectives and special cultural experiences are what make the museum so appealing. The temporary exhibitions specialise in one theme and leave no guest untouched.
The museum's own collections alone would be worth a visit. Works from the Cremer Collection, the paintings of the Münster painter family tom Ring and exceptional modern art are just a few examples of outstanding art. The museum brings together a total of 1,000 years of art from the early Middle Ages to the present. In total, the collection comprises over 350,000 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and graphics, coins and objects as well as 135,000 books.

The unique atmosphere and the beautiful surroundings along the promenade with a view of the castle all the way to the Aasee make the visit something special. This applies to both sellers and visitors. They will find everything that bargain hunters want and collectors' hearts desire: from toys and household goods to clothes, books and records. This weekend, around 35,000 visitors can look forward to a very special highlight: the summer night flea market with moonlight! It starts at dusk on Friday at 8 pm. Then flea market fans can rummage for very special treasures all night long. Professional stalls line up in front of the illuminated castle, while the private part runs along the promenade. And when the sun wakes up, the summer night flea market ends with a coffee in the early morning.
