Closed But Open

Please note: the permanent exhibition is closed for reconstruction. The two upper levels of the Libeskind Building are therefore currently not accessible.
You can still visit the architectural highlights of the Libeskind Building – the Axes in the basement, the Garden of Exile, and the impressive Voids – as well as the current exhibitions and art installations.
