Museum Barberini

The Museum Barberini is an art museum at the Old Market Square, Potsdam. It was rebuilt on the site of the Barberini Palace, that was destroyed by bombing in 1945 and demolished afterwards. The construction of the Museum Barberini was started in August 2013 and was completed in December 2016, the official opening to the public was on 23 January 2017. The Guardian refers to the Barberini first in the "top 10 new museum openings in 2017".

Hasso Plattner, founder of software enterprise SAP and philanthropic patron, funded the Museum Barberini. The charitable German organization Stadtbild Deutschland awarded the reconstruction of the Barberini Palace as "Building of the Year 2016".

Collections

The art gallery exhibits Plattner’s collection of artworks of the former German Democratic Republic, as well as special exhibitions that range from the Old Masters to contemporary art with a focus on impressionism, including works of Rodin, Monet and Edvard Munch. Three temporary exhibitions are planned each year, with major loan collections from international museums and private collections.

Big, beautiful building, but also very busy with lots of people. The different exhibitions are piece by piece beautiful. You only have 1 or 2 very famous paintings what makes it even more interesting.

Die hauseigene App auf dem Smartphone kennt dank Ortungsfunktion alle Bilder im engsten Umkreis. Besser als der Audioguide. Gemütliches Café gleich im Eingangsbereich (auch ohne Ticket).

Neben den Impressionisten haben uns vor allem auch die Bilder der DDR-Künstler beeindruckt - Potsdam ist eine Reise wert, speziell auch wegen des Museums Barberini

Was für ein schöner Besuch! Das Gebäude ist toll und die Gerhard Richter Ausstellung definitiv die Anreise wert. ????
