The Museum of Lacquer Art is located in the heart of the city and is the only one of its kind in the world. The extensive collection of the museum comprises approximately 2,000 exhibits from East Asia, Europe, and the Islamic world with objects from the past two millennia and is displayed to visitors in changing themed exhibitions. The fascination already conveyed by the architecture of the building is continued inside the museum. The aesthetic and beauty of the pieces of art subdivided according to regions are accessible at first glance - their value becomes even more apparent the more one learns about the elaborate production techniques. The regularly occurring special exhibitions of the museum deepen individual aspects of both traditional and contemporary lacquer art. Moreover, events such as concerts and readings turn the museum into a cultural meeting place that is highly appreciated by guests. The museum is a facility owned by BASF in Münster.
