This Jewish painter from Osnabruck was killed during WWII. His paintings relate to the Holocaust and are somewhat unique. The building is asymmetrical and there are a few other exhibits you can also see related to the local history. It's small and ok to see...More

What an experience! This is a must see when in Osnabruck. The architecture is mind-bending and, of course, the content, both the physical art which is both beautiful and tragic, and the Nussbaum story which also is beautiful and tragic, are entirely captivating. The audio...More

This is an impressive museum, on two counts principally: the architecture is modern, innovative, and thought-provoking. Secondly, the well curated exhibition on Felix Nassbaum displays his paintings both thematically and chronologically.

This exceptionally extraordinary building houses the art work of Nussbaum, most of which was created during his period in hiding during the Second World War. His work is haunting and provocative and captures the depth of feeling which he experienced during his years in hiding.
