Art and cultural history from the Middle Ages until the 20th century
The Augustinermuseum, opened in 1923 and located in the former monastery of the Augustinian Hermits, emerged from the Städtische Sammlungen Freiburg, whose history dates back to 1861. It is a museum of art and cultural history. Its collection include around 2,000 paintings from the 15th to the 20th century, as well as some 70,000 drawings and printed graphic works. In addition, there are objects of cultural history, items of everyday life, which tell something about the life of people and times.
The graphic collection and the cultural-historical collection are currently not on display, as the reconstruction of the museum has not yet been completed.
