Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig

Your Visit

The museum is open. No proof of vaccination, testing or convalescence is currently required to visit the MdbK. We strongly recommend that you continue to wear an FFP2 mask or a surgical mask. Please keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from other people. We are looking forward to your visit!

MdbK for all

White markings on the entrance and stair landings, orientation aids in Braille, high-contrast labelling of the most important functions - the new guidance system of the MdbK takes the needs of people with visual impairments into account. The Sächsische Landesstelle für Museumswesen (Saxon State Office for Museums) supports and accompanies us on our way to a more inclusive museum (this measure is co-financed by tax funds on the basis of the budget passed by the Saxon State Parliament).


The sculptures by Berlin-based artist Umut Yasat are part of the project Der Stapel, which Yasat has been pursuing since 2014. At regular intervals, the artist creates material collages from the things around him. You can find the sculptures on the library terrace.

Provenance research

Since the end of the 1990s, so-called provenance research has been an important topic at the MdbK. From the end of 2015 until October 2020, the Magdeburg-based German Centre for the Loss of Cultural Property funded a provenance office at the MdbK with two successive funding projects, thus giving this field of activity new impetus.
