Installing a new exhibition

Dear visitors,

In order to be able to open the major special exhibition “SITTE'S WORLD. Willi Sitte: The Retrospective" on 3 October, about 1,500 square metres of exhibition space require the following: clearing out, reorganising, installing. This means that from the end of July to the beginning of October, large sections of the museum have to be closed to the public. You will find detailed information below.

We hope this does not cause you too much inconvenience.
Your Kunstmuseum Moritzburg Halle (Saale)
