Europe’s largest climate-neutral museum to open in 2024

In 2024, Europe’s largest digital museum will open in eastern HafenCity in Hamburg.

Digital Art Museum in Hamburg will also be Europe’s largest climate-neutral museum, since various measures will ensure the museum’s carbon footprint amounts to zero.

It is being built on over 7,000 square meters with 10-metre high ceilings and will present a permanent exhibition entitled “teamLab Borderless Hamburg”.

Lord Mayor of Hamburg Dr. Peter Tschentscher declared: “The Digital Art Museum will be an extraordinary place for digital art. Hamburg is a great location for a European teamLab project with our strong digital scene and comprehensive digitization strategy. The Digital Art Museum, the Digital Campus Hammerbrooklyn and the future ‘House of the Digital World’ show the diverse perspectives of digitization and will encourage people to help shape the digital future.”

The initiator and investor of the Digital Art Museum Lars Hinrichs said: “When I first visited the teamLab exhibition in Tokyo, I was overwhelmed. Since then, one thing has been clear to me: I want to make it come alive in Hamburg, Germany and Europe!”

Hinrichs explained that the exhibition will also play an educational role: “The following generations can experience digitalisation as far more than simply a cool mobile phone, streaming or games. Anything that can be digital will become digital. Digital art is just the next logical step.”

Although it will open in three years, ticket sales already started and showed that hundreds of people look forward to visiting the museum since they already secured their ticket.
