More than 130 German and international architects took part in the Museum Association's competition for the new Museum which was announced in the spring of 1993. The choice of the Association fell upon the design by Professor Günter Zamp Kelp, Julius Krauss and Arno Brandlhuber, a design in which the striking architecture expresses and reflects the importance of the location.

The main exhibition building is flanked by the administrative tract. The Museum's garden is open for outdoor activities and recreation.
