Projects of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Thuringia, represented by the State Chancellery of Thuringia, Department of Culture and the Arts.
Thanks to a special investment programme financed by the German federal government and the Free State of Thuringia, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar could finally realise its plans to build the new Bauhaus Museum. Designed by Heike Hanada with Benedict Tonon, construction of the museum began in 2015 and was completed in 2019. The museum is distinguished by its contemporary architecture and innovative exhibition design and now holds the treasures of the world’s oldest Bauhaus collection displayed on three levels. The building, which includes a café and museum shop, is accessible to handicapped visitors via all central routes. In the spirit of being open to all, the museum’s design and services ensure maximum accessibility and inclusivity. The Bauhaus Museum opened on 5 April 2019.
