Music and Arts at the Technical University of Munich

The achievements of our scientists are great works of art, indeed – inspirational, creative and highly skilled craftsmanship. So it is not surprising that our Architecture Museum is part of Munich’s Pi­na­kothek der Moderne art museum. And that’s not all: Keen musicians can join one of Munich’s numerous academic choirs or orchestras.

The Symphonische Ensemble München (SEM) regularly performs to a full house in the Munich Philharmonic Or­ches­tra at Gasteig. Students and university staff come together to share their love of music in Munich's 18 aca­dem­ic orchestras and choirs. Academic orchestras and choirs

The Architecture Museum in the Pinakothek der Mo­der­ne is one of the best of its kind in the world. It is both an archive and an exhibition, combining collection, teach­ing and research – a unique position as a uni­ver­sity institution in Germany.

The Technical University of Munich is located in the new museum quarter, not far from the famous Pinako­theks and the Glyptothek. The Deutsches Mu­se­um is the world’s oldest museum of tech­nology and an important research partner of the Technical Uni­ver­sity of Munich. Museums in Munich
