K20 Grabbeplatz is right on the edge of the Düsseldorf Altstadt district, opposite the Opera House and not far from the Kunstakademie. Because of its first-rate collection, the Kunstsammlung has long enjoyed an outstanding position in the international museum world. The collection focuses on modern painting from Western Europe and America.
K21 Ständehaus opened as a Museum of Contemporary Art in April 2002. Here the successful work that K20 has carried out for modern art is being continued into a new era.
K21 is situated in a park by the Kaiserteich near Graf-Adolf-Platz (Friedrichstadt district). With its ground-level piazza, the museum has access to an extraordinary place for exclusive and high-ranking events.
