About the Museum

The Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck is dedicated to showcasing the work of Dadaist artist Hans Arp and his wife Sophie Taeuber-Arp—two of the most influential artists of the early twentieth century avant-garde movement. In addition to the Arp Collection, the museum houses the Sammlung Rau Collection for UNICEF, which contains over 270 works of European painting and sculpture spanning from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century, including masterpieces by Fra Angelico, Antonio Canaletto, François Boucher, Judith Leyster, Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Mary Cassatt, Max Liebermann and Claude Monet. The Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck also posesses an extensive contemporary art collection which includes over 1,000 works by German and international contemporary artists. The collections are not presented in a permanent display; instead, the artworks are shown in changing contexts and are accompanied by complementary loans. A new building, designed by architect Richard Meier, opened in 2007 as an addition to the nineteenth century railway station that had been used since as an exhibition space since the 1960s.
