Permanent Collection
Discover our unique and top-class permanent exhibition with all your senses! The encounter between historical industrial architecture and contemporary art is staged in a fascinating and spectacular way. Spacious installations by international artists such as Joseph Kosuth, Mischa Kuball, Jan van Munster, Keith Sonnier, François Morellet, Bruce Nauman, Rebecca Horn or James Turrell have transformed the underground passages, cooling cellars and fermentation basins of a former brewery into breathtaking light spaces.

Up to 11 €/p
60 min
Next event expected in April.
Tickets available shortly in advance


James Turrell's colourful lighting experience Skyspace comes to life during sunset. Natural and artificial light meet at dusk and mutate the sky into a colour surface that seems to close down the room from the sky and yet is the sky itself.

The art work entitled 'Third Breath', which has been especially designed for Unna, links two perceptual rooms, Skyspace and Camera Obscura, and allows visitors to get a completely new visual experience.

Public Photo Tour
Among our visitors we see many photographers, and most of them want to start taking pictures as soon as they see the museum's charismatic installations and photogenic industrial spaces. Especially for these photographers we organize regular photo tours, where you have the chance to photograph at your own speed and wishes.

In a small group of maximum 10 people, you are accompanied by one of our guides during a two-hour shooting. Get your camera and tripod ready!
