In the location's words:

Museum Barberini is the art museum in Potsdam's historic center, donated by SAP founder and patron Hasso Plattner. Since opening in 2017, the house has established itself as one of Germany's most visited museums with international exhibitions and the donor's important collection of impressionist paintings.

From Rembrandt to Richter

Collecting, researching, presenting, communicating and inspiring - these are the concerns of the Museum Barberini. In addition to the Hasso Plattner Collection, it shows up to three exhibitions a year, often in cooperation with international partners. Whether Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt or Gerhard Richter, antique sculptures, French Impressionism or Baroque painting - the Museum Barberini is dedicated to all styles and epochs and always opens up new perspectives on art.

Center of impressionist painting

Parallel to the temporary exhibitions, the Museum Barberini permanently presents the extensive collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings by museum founder Hasso Plattner, including masterpieces by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Berthe Morisot, Gustave Caillebotte and Paul Signac. Over 100 works by 20 artists take visitors through the history of French Impressionism - from its beginnings in the 19th century to its further development by the Pointillists and Fauvists in Classical Modernism. With 38 paintings by Claude Monet, nowhere in Europe outside of Paris are more works by this artist gathered in one place. Potsdam is thus one of the world's most important centers of Impressionist landscape painting.

Encountering art

The exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive program of symposia and readings, guided tours and concerts, film evenings and workshops, inviting visitors to engage in a lively exchange about art. This is also where Barberini Digital comes in: With changing online offers around the exhibitions, the museum carries the works and the stories behind the paintings into the digital space and enables new access to art. The museum store and the Barberini Cafés with views of the Old Market in Italian flair or the Friendship Island in the Havel round off the art experience.
