The Museum for Photography Brunswick exhibits international contemporary photography with a main focus on the artistic examination of said medium. This makes the museum one of the few that concentrates on the diversity of photographic imagery and artistic possibilities in the context of societal issues. With its two classicist former gatehouses built in the 19th century, the museum also counts among the city’s unique architectural features. The museum is idyllically situated by the river Oker and next to the ‘Louvre of the North’, the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum. Visitors can explore the dialogue between photography, painting and sculpture. The Museum for Photography regularly holds exhibitions showcasing its collection.
