We are currently showing "The Weight of Things" by Damien Hirst, his first and largest survey exhibition in Germany. Hirst's famous diamond skull "For the Love of God" was on display in the MUCA Bunker until the end of January. The entire exhibition in the MUCA main building will run until autumn 2024.

The MUCA Collection is currently being shown in parts in Japan and is therefore not currently on display at the Munich location.

All (shopping) bags, rucksacks and bags must be handed in at check-in. Please refrain from bringing large (travelling) luggage, as we have limited space.

Unfortunately, MUCA's own car parks are not available. Individual spaces for disabled persons can be offered on request. There is also a public multi-storey car park in the immediate vicinity. However, due to the central location in the heart of Munich, we recommend travelling by public transport (Marienplatz S-Bahn/U-Bahn station and Sendlinger Tor U-Bahn/tram station in the immediate vicinity).

The bunker is directly adjacent to the MUCA main building. In the former air raid shelter from the Second World War, the MUCA usually shows special exhibitions or special formats for the current exhibition, which can be staged particularly impressively in this characteristic building. For example, Damien Hirst's famous diamond skull was presented here until the end of January 2024.

As a rule, exhibitions in the bunker can only be visited with a pre-booked guided tour or timeslot. Please refer to our website www.muca.eu inform!

The impressive sculpture "Legend" and a huge spot painting await you on the outdoor areas of the MUCA as part of Damien Hirst's current solo show.
