Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts)

From the Guelph Treasure to industrial products of the 20th century

– © SMB, Kunstgewerbemuseum

As the oldest German Museum of Decorative Arts, the institution, located within the Kulturforum, presents European art handicrafts from the Middle Ages to the present. Here, one can revel in gold and silver, and with a tour through the exhibition halls, let oneself be blinded by the beauty of the everyday objects from past epochs.

The collection of international rank encompasses representational silverware from the city of Lüneburg (Renaissance), bronze, tapestries, furniture, Venetian glasses and majolica, Delftware and baroque glasses, ornaments and table instruments from the Rococo and Classicism, Historicism up until the Art Nouveau and much more.

The “new collection” in the basement also shows, in addition to handicrafts of the 20th century, innovative industrial products as well as fashion from the Uli Richter and Kamer/Ruf collection.

Due to construction works the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts) is closed until in 2014.
