Bauhaus Archive, Berlin

(550+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Great one-room exhibition of origins of Bauhaus movement. If you are interested in understanding the modern art a bit better this is a great opportunity ( do get an audio guide). The collection rotates on weekly/monthly basis, so each time you are visiting, you will see something different. The place is surrounded by great green spot by the river, so it's perfect for chilling outside plus there is a coffee shop. Ticket is only €8 + €20 deposit ( that you will get back at the end ) for audio guide. Absolutely worth seeing / visiting if you are architecture / design / art enthusiast.
  • Some neat stuff in here and a brief history lesson but for the price it could really do with more content. If you don't go for the audio guide (€20 deposit) it's basically an annotated furniture shop. Shame because everything I saw was great, there just isn't enough there to justify the entrance ticket.
  • Amazing museum with very interesting history. Bauhaus original art and design pieces. Must do for design-aware visitors in Berlin.
  • Small exhibit of all sorts of items and furniture related to Bauhaus, with informative text and photography about the school from beginning to end. If you like mid-century modernism, this is for you.
  • The Bauhaus exhibition itself is quite small and could be better curated. Somehow it doesn't really tell the full story of the Bauhaus in its historical context and it's influences on arts, architecture and society. The special exhibition about jasper Morrison was quite good. But this depends on the current exhibition. Looking forward for the Redesign in 2018.
