The LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster is one of the largest art and cultural history museums in North Rhine-Westphalia. The museum was founded over 100 years ago as a symbol of civic commitment and now boasts a collection of roughly 450,000 objects.
In September 2014, the LWL Museum of Art and Culture opened the new building designed by the Volker Staab Architectural Office, Berlin, with a new display of its collection. The museum thus increased its exhibition space by 1,800 square meters to a total of 7,500 square meters, creating the perfect conditions for modern presentations. Linking the new building to the old building dating from the early 20th century permits visitors to experience the display of its collections from the Middle Ages through to the present day in an undisrupted, content-sensitive tour for the first time. These collections are presented in 51 newly designed rooms. Additionally, six spacious rooms are available for the program of the special exhibitions.
