check out: The modern extension completes the courtyard space by adding two new wings, a gabled wing along the rear street and a lower connector to the south, respecting the proportions and patterns of the historic surroundings. It is an interpretation of the quintessential brick building. The new addition is clad entirely with specially developed ceramic shingles that allude to traditional masonry while giving a new format and rich colour play in a spectrum ranging from red, ochre, and slate gray.
The museum is closed on 24–26 December and 31 December – 1 January
