Closed due to remodelling

The museum will be completely closed in June (3.6.-29.6.24) due to the ongoing renovation work and additional alterations.

In 2024, the Museum of Contemporary Art Siegen (MGKSiegen) will be equipping itself for the future. The museum’s operation since its opening in 2001, as well as changing technical requirements necessitate some refurbishment.
