Overview

The Museum for Decorative Arts and Crafts, founded in 1877, is one of the leading museums of its kind. The broad-ranging permanent exhibition that forms its core demonstrates the relationships and interdependency of various cultures throughout the ages. Classical Antiquity is shown as being the beginning of Western Culture, and the importance of the Middle Ages is also displayed here. The Renaissance and crafts of the 17th and 19th centuries are represented, as are sculptures, ivory crafts, porcelain treasures, pieces of furniture and intricate gold jewellery-pieces to admire. The East Asian, Egyptian and Islamic art collections are extremely important and take the form of ceramics, bronzes, paintings and enamel arts. The historic scientific and musical instruments and textiles collections are also exquisite and will make you marvel at the historic wonders of yore.
