The Bauhaus college of design is something Weimar is hugely proud of. Celebrating the work related to architecture, fine art and design by teachers and students, the Bauhaus Museum stands with an aura of assurance and security. The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius.
The Bauhaus Museum incredibly portrays the background, history and lasting influence of the State Bauhaus. The museum is small and minimalistic, but its glass cube structure is architecturally popular for providing an arresting spatial presence in the backdrop of a city. At the museum you will find –
- 250 works by teachers and students of Bauhaus School.
- Works by Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Lyonel Feininger among many.
- An insight into the Bauhaus movement of the 1920s.
- Lovely exhibitions of art and architecture including pottery, furniture, paintings and photos.
The Bauhaus Museum has a rich cultural and historic content. The art and designs on display make it especially special for architects and design students. Keeping in mind the quality and size of the collections, the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin is the only other better than Bauhaus Museum of Weimar.

Given the importance of Bauhaus in design, architecture and arts’ history, I would say that the museum is a disappointment. Way too small, with only one room, and way too little pieces. Anyhow, it’s a must-see place for artists and students of any related area. There’s not enough historical information either, not much of anything really. It made me really sad that the birthplace of such a great institution has now so little to teach.
This is a small museum but it has plenty of stuff to see and listen. The audio guide is detailed. The price is reasonable for this size of exhibition
Bauhaus is famous all over the world, such a small exhibition is out of my expectation. Price is not parallel with contents of display.
Very limited display (one room), aggressive 'no bag' policy forces you to leave valuables, money, credit cards etc in a locker, thus risking your travel insurance cover.
Interesting museum but very small. Apparently they are building a new one, hopefully that one has more to offer, because the subject is very interesting.
