The theme is as old as mankind, but most shy away from dealing with it. For what else arouses so much anxiety as death? In Kassel‘s Museum for Sepulchral Culture, however, everything revolves around this theme.
Opened in 1992, the modern building houses a unique collection that shows that death does not necessarily need to be bleak and depressing. How did people deal with death in the past, how were they buried, and how did they preserve the memory of the dead?
Answers to these questions are found in the extensive permanent collection. Interesting is the comparison with the present. Contemporary art and works from product designers are part of the permanent exhibition. There are also regular temporary exhibitions.
Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00 – 17.00, Wednesday till 20.00 Admission: 6 Euros, reduced 4 Euros (valid for students, federal volunteer service)
