The have banded together under the banner of MuSeenLandschaft Expressionismus (Land of Expressionist Museums and Lakes). The Museen-Karte (Museum Pass) enables you to see all these extraordinary art collections. With this special pass, you pay the regular price in the first museum and then a discounted admission in the other three museums.

Vorschau

Buchheim Museum

In the Buchheim Museum of Imagination, there is a world-famous collection awaiting you. Since the death of the art connoisseur and passionate collector, his critics too have become increasingly silent.

Vorschau

Franz Marc Museum

The private character of the museum has the visitor believing Marc were still here. To this day, the stunning paintings he has left are testimony to his artistic genius.

Vorschau

Schloßmuseum Murnau

Expressionism is the museum's pet subject. It's no wonder considering that the Schloßmuseum is located in the cradle of this extraordinary 20th century artistic movement.

Vorschau

Stadtmuseum Penzberg

He was the youngest member of the Blue Rider group: Heinrich Campendonk. Nevertheless his perception was extraordinary. And thus, even today, his paintings bear witness to a wonderful artist.

Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus

This is a veritable mecca of Expressionism. The Municipal Gallery in the Lenbach House showcases an art style that was vilified under National Socialism.

Pinakothek der Moderne

The Pinakothek der Moderne serves as a non-digital storage and memory assembled in tribute to the art and design of the 20th and 21st centuries, while also serving as a forum for the discussion of contemporary topics and trends.
