Museum of Fine Arts - Modern Art

Now in a new home on Sachsenplatz square, the Museum of Fine Arts in Leipzig is one of the oldest and foremost civil collections in Germany. It is also a vibrant centre for contemporary art.

A vibrant centre for contemporary art
A large part of the collection at the Museum of Fine Arts is made up of items that have been donated or bequeathed by art-loving citizens, many of whom were merchants or intellectuals. Due to their commitment, Leipzig now has a wealth of art treasures that are in a class of their own. During a guided tour of the museum visitors also find out about the families whose former collections they are admiring. The collection of paintings and sculptures covers an exhibition space of around 5,000m² across four floors. There is also an area for temporary exhibitions.
