Applied Arts

Opened in 1874 the Leipzig Applied Arts Museum is the second oldest institution of its kind in Germany.

Initially based in the heart of Leipzig near the Thomas Church, the museum moved to its current location in 1926 as part of the new “Grassi Museum” complex on Johannesplatz.

In 2007, and following extensive renovation, the museum opened the first of its three new permanent exhibition spaces: “Antiquity to Historism”.

The second space, “Asiatic Art. Impetus for Europe”, followed in 2010 and the final stage “Art Nouveau up to the Present Day” is due to open in late 2011.

In addition to the permanent exhibitions the Leipzig Applied Arts Museum also stages regular special, thematic exhibitions.
