A modest museum that seeks to educate visitors about the emergence in Weimar of the Bauhaus design movement after World War one, with original drawings and artefacts (furniture, domestic items) from that era, and an account of the schisms that developed between the leading personalities in the movement.

Very well organised and authorative glimpse of an inspiring idea that was crushed almost at birth. The development of ongoing influences that continue to affect us even to this day. I was inspired by what was created and saddened by what was lost when they were forced to move away from Weimar in the mid 1920 and then finally forced... More

Bauhaus was not only an architectural style but an entire movement. After visiting the museum I'm in awe with my newly gained knowledge.

This museum is small but interesting and providing introductory info on Bauhaus. A new grand museum is to be opened in 2018 so this will do till then!:)

I love the whole notion of the Bauhaus design story. There were a few items to see and stories to read but it was small and I think there are better Bauhaus museums elsewhere. It was an interesting enough short stop in the old town of Weimar.

This museum is not really worth seeing. It is very small and besides some pictures and plans on the walls, there are 7 chairs, a baby bed and some vases exhibitoned; It is a real shame that Weimar (.the Bauhaus town, with famous Bauhaus architects, a.o.Vandenvelde who lived there) has only such a small museum (it is in fact one...

This museum was definitely worth a visit. I knew something about the Bauhaus project, but on the evidence of my visit here not very much. It really gave you a good understanding of what they were trying to achieve and the way their ideas encompassed all aspects of art, design and architecture.

This museum was a nice thorough introduction to the Bauhaus movement and arts. Small and well-done, especially for a one room show. The audio information was especially helpful.
