About the Museum
Situated in Berlin-Charlottenburg, the Museum Berggruen holds the collection of gallerist Heinz Berggruen. Considered among the finest private collections of modern art in the world, it includes works by Henri Matisse, Georges Braque and Alberto Giacometti. Housed in a 19th-century former barracks, the museum opened in 1996 and was later transformed to accommodate further pieces from Berggruen’s collection and a sculpture garden. A highlight of the museum’s collection is its broad survey of the work of Picasso, from his Blue and Rose period through to his late work, as well as a large selection of works on paper by Paul Klee, and examples of African sculpture.
