#42 of 191 in Museums in Berlin
You'll find everything Bauhaus at Bauhaus-Archiv Museum fur Gestaltung, which was founded in 1960 and supported by members of the design movement. The current building was completed in 1979 and features art pieces, items, documents, and literature from the Bauhaus School of architecture, design, and art--which was extremely popular from 1919 to 1933. You also can admire ceramics, metalwork, photography, and even wallpaper designs. The museum offers audio guides in many languages. Look for students making sketches to perhaps peer over the shoulder of a future design genius.

  • Maybe this was our fault for not having checked online before travelling here – but who would do that before visiting any attraction? Our taxi dropped us off by the museum which is totally surrounded....  more »
  • Fascinating work notwithstanding and without doubt a must see. We suspect a great source for academics hidden behind the scenes. Helpful presentation in both German and English, but there is so much....  more »

  • Interesting for anyone wanting to learn about Bauhaus, but quite disappointing. The timeline was in large part written really boringly (mostly listing who came and left and when, instead of giving insight to the era and designs). The app that brought more content to it was an audio guide with few photos - if you don't have enough space in your phone, earphones or the willingness to listen, it's not very appealing. Why not put photos, text or light animation instead? This is what would've been nice in the second floor as well with the women of Bauhaus - portraits and one-sentence introductions really left you wishing for more. The products they designed, the photos they took, quotes? Nothing. The shop lets you see some of the products but doesn't make up for the exhibit. Also, the video about the "100 years of Bauhaus" centennial year events etc. didn't have subtitles so you don't get much out of it if you don't know German.
  • Very small temporary exhibit is complimented by a nice on line guide and a great show about women in the Bauhaus. The store is fun too.
