Explore Museum Berggruen on your university or college trip to Berlin.

Located just next door to the Bröhan Museum, Berlin is the home of one of the world's major private collections in the Berggruen Collection and houses exceptional works of classic modern art. 

The museum is named after the art dealer and collector Heinz Berggruen, who was born in Berlin-Wilmersdorf in 1914. After leaving Nazi Germany in 1936, he emigrated to the USA where he initially worked as a freelance arts journalist, before taking up a post in 1939 at the San Francisco Museum of Art. 

Berggruen then worked in this profession for more than forty years, during which time he emerged as one of Paris’s leading gallerists, in particular of for prints and drawings by Pablo Picasso.

Showcasing works from Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Paul Klee, and Alberto Giacometti, the Museum Berggruen hosts one of the most influential museums of modern art in Berlin.
