Housed in the former residence of Franz von Lenbach, Lenbachhaus was sold to the city in 1924 by the artist's widow. Shortly after, Munich's city art collections found a home together inside the building. The exhibits map out Germany's major art movements from the 19th century to present day. The Munich Secession group's work combined Impressionism, avant-garde, and Art Nouveau to create a style completely German. View their work and others in the 19th century gallery. A gallery dedicated to the Objectivity movement continues the journey through German art history. For art created after the end of World War II, visit the Art After 1945 gallery, where experiential, conceptual, and installation art dominates. The friendly layout includes an intimate restaurant in a modern structure overlooking the museum grounds.

Added this to our touring of Munich at the last minute, and am very glad I did. I enjoyed learning more about the Blue Rider Art Movement, which was very thoroughly explored.

Modern art of various themes. A lot of Kadinski pieces that are pretty good but the rest left us flat. Others might find the art much more appealing. We went only because we had a couple extra hours.
