With four important museums under one roof, the Pinakothek der Moderne (Gallery of Modern Art) is one of the world's largest houses for the exhibition of art, architecture and design of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
The architecture of the spacious building with the glass rotunda invites visitors to discover connections and gain new, surprising insights. Exhibitions and events from diverse cultural areas complete the interdisciplinary programme.
The Pinakothek der Moderne was planned by Stephan Braunfels (b. 1950) and is one of the largest spaces for the collections of modern and contemporary art, architecture and design in Europe. Four completely independent museums are present under its roof. The Architekturmuseum der Technischen Universität München (Architecture Museum of the Technical University Munich), the Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum, the Sammlung Moderne Kunst der Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen (Collection of Modern Art of the Bavarian State Paintings Collections) and the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München (State Print Room Munich).
