Weserburg Museum of Modern Art
International contemporary art from important private holdings, Europe's largest collection of art publications, special exhibitions and events.
Weserburg Museum of Modern Art is located on a peninsula in the middle of the river Weser. Set in four converted warehouses, which housed the Schilling coffee roastery until 1982, it is Europe's first collectors' museum. The Weserburg is one of the largest museums of modern art in Germany, enjoying great renown around the world since it was founded in 1991.
Constantly changing exhibitions of the museum's renowned collections and special exhibitions illustrate the development of art from the 1960s to the present day.
The Research Centre for Artists' Publications with its archive for small press & communication is one of the most important archives of its kind anywhere in the world. In addition to a range of educational activities, the museum offers a multifaceted programme consisting of weekly guided tours, concerts, lectures, performances, artists in conversation and film screenings. Weserburg Museum of Modern Art offers a unique Bremen forum for the discussion of contemporary trends in art.
Every year between August and February, Bremen's KEK children's museum mounts an interactive exhibition at the Weserburg. The activities and collections serve as tools to enable younger children and teenagers to quench their thirst for knowledge and perform experiments that engage all the senses. The different stations and workshops will help them to improve and practise their manual, aesthetic and intellectual skills.
