The Museum Ulm has been under reconstruction since April 17, 2023, and therefore is closed at the moment.
Until the end of the construction work in autumn 2025, it can be found in the neighbouring kunsthalle weishaupt, among other places. From January 2024, the Museum Ulm will be a guest there with an annual exhibition of works. Then the famous Lion Man will also be on display again. The approximately 40,000-year-old man-animal sculpture made of mammoth ivory is unique in the world.

The Museum Ulm is a unique universal museum of art and cultural history. The focus of medieval art is the outstanding collection of late Gothic painting and sculpture. With the Kurt Fried Collection Foundation, it presents the most important artistic trends of the USA and Europe of the 20th century. The highlight of the Archaeological Collection is the "Lion Man" from the UNESCO World Heritage Site Stadel Cave, one of the oldest figurative carvings in the world.

The HfG Archive Ulm, Am Hochsträß 8, 89081 Ulm, in the original rooms of the former Hochschule für Gestaltung is open regularly.
