The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung

Berlin’s Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung holds the world’s largest collection related to the history of the Bauhaus (1919–1933), the 20th century’s most important school of architecture, design and art. In the years to come, the Bauhaus-Archiv will be receiving a new museum building. While construction work is in progress, the museum and archive are closed to visitors. During that time, we cannot grant any loans from our collection. Thank you for your understanding.

We welcome visitors at the temporary bauhaus-archiv!
