The current museum was formerly Emil Nolde's residential and studio house, which he had designed himself. The building is reminiscent of the Bauhaus architecture of the 1920s with its straight lines.
Nolde has deliberately chosen an architecture that contrasts with the area's thatched hairdressers: The red brick building with the narrow windows and the flat roof stands on a yard and raises itself self-consciously over the flat landscape. The living rooms on the ground floor still stand with the original furnishings and can be seen to some extent.
In Nolde's former studio, which is also on the ground floor, his religious images, with the main work of the riveted cycle "The Life of Christ" (1911-12), are on display today. Directly above the studio is the picture room, which was built in 1937. The former living rooms on the first floor were converted into cabinets where today you can see Nolde's color-intensive watercolors and graphic prints.
