Munich’s modern art museum contains four collections, all housed in a pristine white box of a building, designed by Stefan Braunfels and opened in 2002. The most important is the Staatsgalerie moderner Kunst (Gallery of Modern Art), displaying major 20th-century classics by internationally known artists including Matisse, Picasso, Gris, Ernst, Giacometti, and others. Alongside you’ll find a wealth of excellent German modern art, represented by Die Brücke artists like Kirchner and Schmidt-Rotluff, and the Blaue Reiter group with Kandinsky, Franz Marc, and Auguste Macke. Sculpture, photography, and video are also part of this collection. The other museum holdings include the Neue Sammlung (Craft and Design Collection), the Museum of Architecture (architectural drawings, photographs, and models), and the Graphische Sammlung (Graphics Collection), which is not open to the general public except by request.
