In the organizer's words:

In 1927, the architects Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret built a semi-detached house for the Werkbund exhibition "The Dwelling". It has housed the Weissenhof Museum since 2006. It is open to visitors as the only accessible house in the Weissenhof Estate. In 2016, the building was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with Le Corbusier's neighboring detached house.

The tour of the Weissenhof Museum leads through two halves of the house, which are dedicated to different focal points.

In the left half of the house, the origins and history of the Weissenhof estate and its 17 architects are presented with models, photos, plans and various exhibits. The tour of the exhibition is arranged chronologically and covers the period from 1907 (foundation of the Deutscher Werkbund) to 2006 (opening of the museum). The museum design is reminiscent of the original floor plan.

Le Corbusier's design for a "transformable house" from 1927 can be seen in the semi-detached house on the right. The restored floor plan, the changeable living space, the furnishings and the color scheme are based on historical sources, which are compared with restoration findings.
