Our library in the museum

Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum is not just a museum.
It also has a very special library.
The entrance to this library is in the Türken-Straße.

Our museum has many history books on different topics:
Applied arts
Applied arts want to make everyday objects beautiful.
Design determines how an object looks.
• and on the special areas of the museum
For example: glass, ceramics or posters.

The library has about 21,000 objects.
For example:
• Monographs
These are books about a single person or a single subject.
• Specialist books
• Catalogues
• Magazines

You can search online for specific objects.
