The Bayerisches Nationalmuseum
The Bayerisches Nationalmuseum collects, preserves and explores unique testimonies to the art, culture and history of Bavaria and its ties throughout Europe from Late Antiquity up until the early 20th century. To ensure that the museum continues to be cutting edge, we are continually expanding the collection to include objects up to the present day.
The Bayerisches Nationalmuseum is unwavering in its determination to reaffirm the relevance of arts, culture and cultural education. As an vibrant institution for the mediation of art, the museum aims to convey cultural history through its collections, exhibitions and publications. Our goal is to convey knowledge in a generally accessible and lively manner and inspire enthusiasm and curiosity in a broad public. We are intent on providing orientation in an increasingly complex world characterised by growing social and technological challenges.
The Bayerisches Nationalmuseum works in an interdisciplinary, competent, critical, responsible and committed manner to realise its mission. To this end, it promotes cultural identity, creates the conditions for constructive dialogue and strives to participate in current social issues and discourses.
The Bayerisches Nationalmuseum provides a space for the public – regardless of age, origin, education and religion – to discover and experience cultural and historical heritage. The museum is committed to freedom of opinion, art and science, and to respect for all cultures.
