Intro

The Zentrum Paul Klee, which opened in 2005, is dedicated to the person, life and work of Paul Klee (1879–1940). It houses the worldwide largest collection of Klee's works. Paul Klee is regarded as one of the 20th century's most important artists.

Due to the current Covid situation the museum is temporarily closed.

With about 4,000 paintings (40% of his oeuvre) by the famous painter Paul Klee, the Zentrum Paul Klee houses the largest collection of its kind. The unusual building has a wave-like structure and was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano. Apart from art exhibitions, the Zentrum Paul Klee also offers a platform for music, theatre, dance and literature.

The museum building was built by Italian architect Renzo Piano, a winner of several awards. He created a green island from which three hills of steel and glass arise. These contain exhibition space, a music and event hall, a children's museum as well as meeting and seminar rooms.

Klee's works are shown in a regularly changing, rotating selection of 120 to 150 works, always with changing themes.

The Kindermuseum Creaviva is home to living creativity. Through expression of one’s own ideas, the techniques and themes of the great art masters emerge in a ‘learning by doing and experiencing’ process.
