A prestigious collection of sculptures, drawings, wood carvings, lithographs, letters and manuscripts from Ernst Barlach.

The Ernst Barlach Museum in Wedel is the birthplace of the German sculptor, medallist, writer and draughtsman, which was opened for exhibitions in August 1987. The house has a representative collection of sculptures, woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, manuscripts and letters by Ernst Barlach.

The museum in Wedel sees itself as a lively place for the examination of art and culture from classical modernism to the present. Regular special exhibitions use historical as well as current themes, so that the representation not only presents nationally important German artists together with their collections, but also international art. In this way, the Ernst Barlach Museum in Wedel actively participates in intercultural dialogue.

The exhibition "The Beatles - Come Together" will start on 5 March 2022. The exhibition attempts to approach the phenomenon of "The Beatles" from multiple perspectives using video and visual material. Within the framework of the exhibition, the history of the band is accentuated anew - the personal and character-related peculiarities of the four musicians are also brought into view. By means of numerous music clips, the exhibition also illuminates the band's musical side. What is special about this is that not only the band's points of view are illuminated, but also those of the observers and fans, in order to make it visible and tangible where the worldwide fascination, which continues to this day, lies.
