Address: Schöne Aussicht 1

Erected from 1871-1877 as a museum building for the collection of Old Master paintings. It suffered severe damage in World War II. In 1962, when it was clear that the Old Master Painting Gallery would thereafter be shown in Wilhelmshöhe Castle, the decision was also made to rebuild the Old Gallery and rename it New Gallery. It was reopened with an altered floor plan in 1976 to display painting and sculpture from 1750 to the present.

The New Gallery has been closed since October 2006 for renovation work and was thus available for temporary use by documenta 12. The gallery's reopening after renovation and remodeling is planned for Spring 2009.
