Art Mu­seums

Cul­tur­al centres show­ing paint­ings, sculp­tures and pho­to­graphs by the hands of mas­ters

Artists such as Rembrandt, van Gogh, Picasso and Beuys are immortalised at the most well-loved art museums in the state. Establishments such as Museum Folkwang, Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen and Museum Ludwig present key works by the most influential painters, sculptors and photographers in their exhibitions. Art lovers and newcomers can look forward to an inspiring journey through the ages and styles on a tour. And at most of the establishments, the architecture itself is an artwork worth visiting.
