3.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
You'll find everything Bauhaus at Bauhaus Archive, which was founded in 1960 and supported by members of the design movement. The current building was completed in 1979 and features art pieces, items, documents, and literature from the Bauhaus School of architecture, design, and art--which was extremely popular from 1919 to 1933. You also can admire ceramics, metalwork, photography, and even wallpaper designs. The museum offers audio guides in many languages. Look for students making sketches to perhaps peer over the shoulder of a future design genius. Bauhaus Archive is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Berlin Edition.

  • I absolutely adored visiting here, it was a great pleasure to be amongst such radical and life chaning design. I don't think we could think of a future without the influence of Bauhaus. The attendants...  read more »
  • The building in itself is worth the trip to this museum. But it is quite expensive for such a small exhibition, which only took my boyfriend and I about 30-40 minutes to walk through. But for die hard...  read more »
  • I loved the visit since I remember studying Bauhaus as school. So I was alway in a world that I knew and enjoyed. I would say though that they demanded I put my bag in a locker and they lighting isn't great there
  • I really loved visiting here after years of admiration of the Bauhaus school and studying the history from books, so this felt like visiting an old friend. The location is quite far out of town, so plan your journey but on arrival you can enjoy a nice coffee or snack from the café and then grab an audio guide and enjoy the small but well formed collection. The language is all English friendly and the staff are helpful and very efficient plus you can put your bag in a locker while you look around. The gift shop is lovely, a great selection and perfect for a souvenir or something practical and beautiful. The main gallery is for the public but the library and archive are appointment only so don't expect to be able to walk in without checking first. A lovely morning or afternoon destination if you're visiting the city.
  • Brilliant museum. If you like the Bauhaus style, you'll love it. The café is pretty nice and comfy as well, and the museum shop offers a bunch of cool stuff, including rather nice posters for as low as 5€. Big recommendation.
  • One thing that really disappoints is the fact that you cannot take photos inside, and the staff is very strict about this. The collection is great, and the best pieces of Bauhaus are stored here, but from the other side I expected the bigger exposition. Nice shop.
  • Big LOL. What is this even?! Don't waste your time visiting as a touris.
