Create an itinerary including Museum Barberini
The Museum Barberini is an art museum in Potsdam opened in 2017. Its exhibitions range from the so-called Old Masters to contemporary art, with an emphasis on impressionist painting. Centered around works from the collection of its founder and patron Hasso Plattner, the Barberini presents three temporary exhibitions per year, featuring loans from international museums and private collections. Academic conferences serve to prepare these exhibitions. At the same time, shorter gallery displays – the so-called “art histories” – put works from the collection into constantly shifting contexts. The museum aims to offer a diverse programme of events and educational activities as well as digital offers like the Barberini App and the 4K Smart Wall in the museum.

The director of the Museum Barberini is Ortrud Westheider.

  • If you're interested in Impressionist painting, this museum will be heaven on earth for you. With famous pieces from great artists such as Monet, Renoir, Pissaro, Caillebotte and many more, the museum's collection is breathtaking. It's possible to download the museum's app and listen to the audio guide in it.
  • I personally did not particularly enjoy the modern/abstract exposition on the lower floors but that's subjective of course. The main Impressionist exhibit was AMAZING. So many Monets and a lot of other artists. I went around the whole floor twice and did not want to leave. The lighting and positions of the paintings are very good.
