The exhibition focusses on the secular aspects of the monastery's history. It explores the historical development of the lands owned by Wiblingen Monastery and of its monastic jurisdiction, the social status of the peasants and the place of agriculture in history.
Museum im Konventbau
Within 50 years, the entrepreneurial couple Siegfried and Jutta Weishaupt built up a priceless collection of modern and contemporary arts. The collection is housed in the newly built privately owned museum, which has been open to the public since November 2007.
It offers 1280 sqm of exhibition space for thematic exhibitions alternating at regular intervals. Either different artists from the collection are combined or the focus is put on only one artist represented in the collection.
Museum Brot und Kunst
Visiting this museum of arts, archaeology and history is travelling through time in a most fascinating way: The ›Lion Man‹ carved from mammoth ivory is more than 40,000 years old, which makes it the world's earliest figurative human/animal shaped sculpture.
Late Gothic sculptures and paintings give us an idea of the era in which Ulm Minster was built. The objects of the museum include sculptures by Joerg Syrlin the Elder and Michel Erhart as well as paintings by Bartholomew Zeitblom and Martin Schaffner.
The modern building by the New York architect Richard Meier, which is situated right at the heart of Ulm, has been home to experimental and extraordinary projects for more than 25 years. This interaction of architectural styles right next to the late Gothic Minster of Ulm creates an atmosphere that seems equally committed to tradition and the future.
These programmes that are either an own production or a cooperation focus on contemporary art, photography, architectural or environmental topics and so called Outsider Art. Contemporary dance and music are also an essential part. There is also a small permanent exhibition about the history of this place in the basement of the building.
