Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe

One of the most important museums of design in Europe

Opened in 1877, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg (MK&G) is one of Europe's leading museums of design.

Its collection ranges from antiquity to contemporary innovations and encompasses the European, East Asian and Islamic cultural areas. The museum sees itself as a house for discourse and regards the question of the design of our world as one of the most important topics of our time.

Designing the world

Numerous events, exhibitions and projects open the view on social development and question the shaping of the world. In addition to aesthetic and entertaining themes, the focus is increasingly on socio-political issues revolving around the environment, sustainability and speculative visions of the future.

Since September 2020, Freiraum at MK&G has seen itself as a consumption-free platform for exchange with urban society.
