LWL Museum for Art and Culture

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.

Broaden horizons

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 visitor untouched.

The museum's own collections alone would be worth a visit. Works from the Cremer Collection, paintings by the Münster painter family tom Ring and exceptional modern art are just a few examples of outstanding art. The Sculpture Projects Archive deserves special attention. The museum is not only home to numerous sketches, models and documents relating to the major exhibition that takes place every ten years, but also to some remarkable installations and sculptures.
