The likes of Lichtenstein and Warhol share the walls with German artists including Beuys and Richter at the Museum of Modern Art. Dubbed the 'slice of cake', due to its triangular shape, this central museum offers leading temporary exhibitions too.
Many of the works on display originally formed part of Darmstadt industrialist Karl StrɆher's collection. A highlight of any visit is the Pop Art section, exhibiting important works by Tom Wesselmann, Jim Dine and Robert Rauschenberg.

Venturing further into the museum's many galleries, visitors can admire Bernd and Hilla Becher's evocative photo series, Kawara's Date Paintings and Gerhard Richter's inspirational 18 October 1977 cycle.

Complementing the permanent collection are special exhibitions called Satellites, which include the archive, children's room and Dornbracht Installation Projects. These quirky exhibitions aim to appeal to different artistic tastes and perceptions.
