"Neues Museum - State Museum For Art And Design" Museums Tip by AnnaLupilla

Museums, Nürnberg: 9 reviews and 24 photos

Outside of the New Museum is notable for the harmonious contrast between its modern and transparent architecture and the adjacent medieval fortifications.
Inside, the unique juxtaposition of contemporary international art and design is equally striking.
The design section, drawn from the collection of the Bavarian State Museum for Applied Arts in Munich, offers a selection of international paradigms from 1945 to the present.
Special exhibitions and related programs are geared to fostering lively interest in contemporary art and design.
The New Museum, which also houses the Nuremberg Institute for Modern Art and the Designforum Nuremberg, is further enhanced by an auditorium, a book and design shop and the museum restaurant "Proun".
