This was the Nazi party's first monumental structure for use as propaganda, note the architecture and maybe take a 3rd Reich tour to learn more about it.

The Haus der Kunst (literally house of art) was built by the Nazis in 1937 to showcase exhibitions having a very narrow focus to only what the party found appropriate at the time. The building survived the war and starting from 1946 exhibitions have been held again although no permanent collection has been at the Haus der Kunst since 2002. Check the offficial Haus der Kunst website to see what is going on while you are here.
Around back and in the basement is the famous P1 nightclub where the high society of Munich dance the night away.
