Martin von Wagner Museum

Visitors to the antiques collection of the Martin von Wagner Museum can admire antiquities and works of art from around the Mediterranean dating from the third century B.C.E. to the Late Antique.

Founded over 175 years ago, the collection enjoyed a good reputation internationally mainly due to its extensive collection of priceless Greek vases.

The 'modern' collection offers visitors treasures from more recent eras. It focuses on painting and sculpture from the 15th to 19th centuries. The best-known works in the collection are sculptures by Tilman Riemenschneider, the master sculptor from Würzburg.

Hand drawings and prints comprise the Graphic Art Collection, which includes works by the Tiepolo family and copperplate etchings and woodcuts by Albrecht Dürer.

The Martin von Wagner Museum is located in the south wing of the Würzburg Residenz.
