The Museum of Arts and Crafts (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe — MKG) is one of the most important museums of applied arts in Europe. Its collection includes artifacts from the ancient world to the present and encompasses 4000 years of European, Islamic and Asian cultures.
The museum was opened in 1877 and is located in a neo-renaissance palace. Inside, you’ll find several floors on which arts and crafts, interior design and photography from Europe, the Middle East and Asia are displayed. The permanent collection spans all time periods from the ancient world to the present day, and includes changing exhibitions about modern and contemporary culture. Recent years have seen exhibitions on tattoos, comics, computer games, the fashion industry, plastic waste and more. Check out the MKG's current and upcoming exhibitions on the official website.
