POI 13: Art Collections
A museum free of charge directly on campus: the art collections of the Ruhr University invite visitors to stroll through a combination of modern and classical works. The coin collection features the so called Treasure of Querenburg: Coins from medieval times which were found in 1966 during construction work for a university building at the Querenburger Höhe are displayed here.
Art cannot only be found in the museum, but all over the campus. The window of Vasarely in the HZO building and the reproduction of Picasso's Guernica at the library are only two examples.
Modern works, which are part of the RUB art collections, can further be visited in the exhibition "Situation Kunst" in the park of House Weitmar.
