About
The LWL-Museum fur Kunst und Kultur unites 1,000 years of art, ranging from the early Middle Ages through to the present. Guided tours, workshops and artists’ talks offer new ways of approaching art. Concerts, readings, dance, theatre and film attract the public into the foyer, the Lichthof in the old building as well as into the Auditorium. The museum concept takes into account the special needs of visitors with disabilities. Thanks to such highlights as the Soest Antependium, works by the tom Ring family of painters, the collections of expressionists artworks and of contemporary art the museum has achieved international recognition. The museum shows changing exhibitions across a floor space of approximately 1,000 square metres, with additional spaces for studio exhibitions and presentations of contemporary art. Since 1977, the museum has been the organizer of Skulptur Projekte every ten years, most recently in 2017, examining public space as a site for art.

Worth seeing!
Sep 2020
A museum worth visiting, which gives a good overview of the history of art in the last centuries. The present-day art is not neglected. There is a well-signposted route through the entire exhibition, so that you won't miss anything.

Terrific Museum!
Sep 2019 • Friends
The Museum for Art and Culture in Muenster was terrific and its medieval collections were stunning! Relatively new, laid out well, excellent descriptions of collections, and generally a wonderful educational experience!

excellent atmosphere, customized for each exhibit
May 2019
Atmosphere in the museum is fine, and different for various sectors. Maybe the guards are a little overguarding but you must accept this and adjust.

Fabulous museum with excellent museum café
Mar 2019 • Couples
Unlike other visitors we do like the modern architecture of the museum. The exhibitions are changing and it is worth checking beforehand what is on offer. We spend a good time there. The museum café is a must - excellent coffee, nice cake, friendly staff.

Vast collection but very rude attendants!
May 2018
I visited on a quiet Wednesday afternoon. There was a Catholic day festival on outside in the cathedral grounds, so not many people inside the museum. Whilst the collection is vast in scale and well laid out, I have never encountered museum attendants like the ones here. One particular young fellow was intent on following me into each room and standing directly behind me whilst I viewed the pairings, as if I was about to run out the door with one! I felt like saying to him, has he ever even been to another art museum anywhere else in the world!?? Whilst there were other attendants who did not follow me, this severely reduced the experience of the gallery, especially since he was following me in my favourite section of impressionist works. This museum needs to train its new attendants in correct etiquette! Also, there are NO English descriptions anywhere in sight, and no English audio guide. German only, and German rudeness too!

Well worth the visit
Apr 2018 • Couples
This museum is right across from St Paul's Cathedral on the Domplatz in Muenster. It adjoins the former bishop's building but most of the galleries are in the strikingly modern addition. The desk staff were charming and very helpful. We spent our day in the galleries on the first floor and never did get up to the modern Art exhibits on the second floor. The galleries are well lit and well organized. And there are plenty of places to just sit and appreciate the exhibits. There are several exhibits linked to the Anabaptist revolt and rule in Muenster. The English commentary on these use the term "Baptist" which I do not believe has the same meaning as "Anabaptist".

Nicely laid out museum
Apr 2018 • Friends
This spacious museum has one floor of mostly religious art of the period from 1500-1600 and a floor of modern art. Not everything is equally interesting but overall you can have a nice visit here.

Did not expect this!
Nov 2017 • Couples
We visited the LWL Museum mainly because the weather was pretty bad and an easy city stroll not much fun. But now I'm truly thankful for bad weather as it allowed us to discover this beautiful and highly interesting museum. The art collection is huge and covers almost one thousand years of sculptures, paintings, icons, all of a truly outstanding quality. Also the museum building is amazing in itself ... don't let the exterior fool you - once inside you will be stunned by the space, light and architecture!
If you are into art - don't miss the LWL!
