Pinakothek der Moderne houses four separate museums of modern art in over 22,000 sq m (5.4 acres). One museum displays items from the permanent collection of over 3,000 pieces of art from a range of genres. Another focuses on works on paper, with drawing and prints from the 15th century up to today. The architecture museum holds the largest collection of architectural drawings in Germany. At the International Design Museum Munich, see a selection of its 80,000 industrial design, graphic design, and arts and crafts holdings. Try to remember the route you take through the gallery rooms, as some visitors find the building a bit of a labyrinth.
