Gropius & Schmieden designed the building as an arts & crafts museum (opened 1881). After being damaged 1945,it wasn’t until 1966 that it was classified as a historical monument.Reconstruction began in 1978.Since than it has become one of the most famous & most beautiful exhibition halls in Germany.
Really cool contemporary art museum, close to other famous sites like Checkpoint Charlie, Topography of Terror and some remnants of the Berlin wall
The Gropius Bau has the best exhibitions. Exciting, interesting and inspiring. And the building is also wonderful.
Great art exhibition shows are similarly engaging and exciting! I have learnt so much about contemporary art over here. Check it out!
“I don't know the curator, but he/she must be quite a person as there are really good art shows put on here. The building next door, the Liebeskind building, is a must-see. The architecture is quite breath-taking and can make you feel manic, and i guess that's pretty much the architect's point!”
