It was only by means of an unprecedented campaign by the citizens of Memmingen that it was possible to rescue the historic four-winged building of the Memmingen order of St. Anthony built at the end of the 15th century, the order’s oldest existing historic site in Europe. Since 1996 the renovated buildings have been home to the museums in Antonierhaus, the municipal library and a café. It is also a central venue for events. The Antonierhaus unites on one hand documentation about the cultural historical importance of the order and history of everyday life and on the other hand it presents the works of the one of Memmingen’s most famous artists, Bernhard Strigel, an artist from the transition period of the late mediaeval age to the modern age.
A walk through the museum offers the ideal opportunity: museum documentation in buildings of which much of the original substance from the late 15th century has been preserved. We wish you a pleasant visit to the museum.
