The current Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany was originally constructed as the Haus der Deutschen Kunst (House of German art) between 1934-1937.

The museum served as a showcase for national-socialist art. Every year from 1937 to 1944 the Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung (Great German art exhibition) was held, where hundreds of paintings and statues were displayed. During the first exhibition, an exhibition showing "degenerate" art was held nearby.

This site features an interactive 3D reconstruction of all 40 exhibition rooms of the Haus der Deutschen Kunst, filled with 386 artworks that were exhibited between 1937 and 1944.
