The Edwin Scharff Museum is a place that welcomes art lovers and children alike.
You will find us at Petrusplatz in the centre of Neu-Ulm, only a ten-minute walk from Münsterplatz, the main square in Ulm.
Our museum is one with many different aspects. Our collections and special exhibitions occupy some 1500 square metres of exhibition space. Firstly, we have an important collection of the works of Edwin Scharff (1887–1955), born in Neu-Ulm and one of the major German sculptors of the first half of the 20th century. We also display the bequest of the abstract painter, Ernst Geitlinger (1895–1972). These two permanently displayed artists are supplemented by thematically related special exhibitions.
But there is also something else that is special about the Edwin Scharff Museum: the museum is complemented by a children's museum which happens to be also very popular with adults. Regulary we allocate about 500 square metres to a new exhibition that can cover any aspect of life. Here hands-on experimentation, play and discovery are explicitly welcomed and encouraged. The Edwin Scharff Museum is unique in Germany in allocating equal space to the children's museum and the presentation of art.
The children's museum is closed until 17th November!
