The Goethe Museum can be reached by taking the stairs or the lift in the wing next to the Goethe House. It is not a literary museum in the usual sense of the term – instead, the fourteen rooms offer you a journey through the art of the Age of Goethe. Goethe, himself an artist and collector, attaches great importance to fine art throughout his life. In his poetry, too, it plays a major role – "for what would the world be without art".
