Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (Arts and Crafts Museum)
Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (Arts and Crafts Museum) Review
The museum houses a wide range of exhibits, from 15th- to 18th-century scientific instruments to an art-nouveau interior complete with ornaments and furnishings. It was built in 1876 as a combination museum and school. Its founder, Justus Brinckmann, intended it to be a bastion of the applied arts that would counter what he saw as a decline in taste owing to industrial mass production. A keen collector, Brinckmann amassed a wealth of unusual objects, including ceramics from around the world.
