The Von der Heydt Museum is a museum in Wuppertal, Germany.

The Von der Heydt Museum includes works by 19th and 20th century artists. The first of Pablo Picasso’s works that ever appeared in public was displayed here.

History

The museum is housed in the former city hall of Elberfeld, which in 1902 became a municipal museum.

The museum was named in 1961 after the Von der Heydt family. Banker August von der Heydt (1851–1929) and his son Eduard von der Heydt (1882–1964) were important patrons.
