Research is a prioritized area of activity for Kode. Our research work ensures the collections are understood in new contexts and contributes to bringing new art and music into the public debate.
Managing the collection is the museum’s core activity. Our main task is to preserve the cultural heritage entrusted to us for future generations. We do this through conservation, restoration, handling, and transport as well as preventive conservation and storage. Here, you can learn about the work we do and those who maintain our collection.
Kode presents art and music for people at all stages of life. We invite you into the museum’s many exhibitions and give you musical experiences in the composers’ homes.
