According to the collections of the museum the library preserves literature on Modern Art, Photography, and Architekture, mainly of the 20th century. The stock (at the moment 70.000 volumes) expands countinously by means of donations and estates (for example the library of Eberhard Roters, the founder of the museum).

It annually increases by about 2000 units, mainly by means of the publication exchange program with about 170 institutions at home and abroad.

Café Dix

The museum café offers fresh food prepared, coffee and cakes.

The interior for the café has been designed in 2021 by the architectural studio Kinzo and fitted out by the Berlin furniture brand Objekte Unserer Tage (OUT). The open structure of the 150m² space has been highlighted, revealing an unexpected airiness, flexibility and elegance.

If you need a venue to host a party or event for up to 80 people, our café will gladly cater for you. Our sun terrace seats up to 48 guests.

Opening times

Café Dix will remain closed until further notice.
The café is expected to reopen in April under the new operator Bark Berlin Culinary.
Thank you for your understanding!
