Opening ceremony on the occasion of the Regensburg anniversary celebration on June 9 and 10, 2018

After the festive event with Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder, the Museum of Bavarian History in Regensburg was presented to the public for the first time on June 9, 2018. Visitors were able to gain an impression of the new building and the foyer with its diamond-shaped glass ceiling.

The monolithic building with its gray ceramic facade, designed by the Frankfurt-based architecture firm Wörner Traxler Richter, is not yet completed. Last summer, a fire on the building site disrupted the construction schedule.

In May 2019, that is in less than one year, the huge museum covering the Donaumarkt area will be inaugurated. 2,500 square meters are available for the permanent exhibition on Bavarian history from 1800 up to the present; in addition, another 1,000 square meters can be used for special exhibitions. Furthermore, the museum will include a so-called Bavariathek with media rooms, a library as well as an image archive. This extension of the museum into virtual space is planned to set new standards in museum pedagogics. Moreover, visitors can already look forward to a showroom offering a 360 degree panorama for major media installations on Bavarian history.

In this project, Müller-BBM was responsible for the museum's building acoustics and room acoustics as well as for noise control.
