Established as a foundation in 1989 and opened to the public in 1997, the ZKM Media Museum at the Centre for Art and Media in Karlsruhe is probably the world's first museum specialising exclusively in interactive art. It owns the largest collection of interactive media artworks in the world.

Focus on interactive media art
The ZKM Media Museum at the Centre for Art and Media in Karlsruhe is the only cultural institution of its kind in the world. Art and new media are thoroughly interwoven here. The media museum is the first museum designed to be completely interactive. It focuses on works from the new genre of interactive media art, and illustrates and investigates their impact. Installations and environments employ different strategies to draw the viewer in and use new technologies in a wide range of creative ways.
