When you’re at the centre of Münster in Westfalen, Germany and have some time left: why not visit a nice art museum? The LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur is located at the Domplatz opposite to the cathedral. It was opened in the year 1908 and contains of connected old and new buildings. The range of exhibited works goes from medieval times until today. You’ll find a lot of sacral items and works from local artists here.
What I really liked is that from 1950 on they created a new modern gallary with impressionist, expressionist and avantgarde works. This is especially focussed on August Macke as he came from Westphalia. Changing exhibitions complete this good museum. As expected you will also find a coffee bar, a souvenir shop, toilets and lockers within the building. If it is your first time in this region you might wonder about the LWL in the name of the museum – it refers to the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe, a regional organisation that runs museums and provides social services.
