Georg Kolbe (1877–1947) was an influential sculptor in the first half of the 20th century. A member of the Berlin Secession, Kolbe distanced himself from traditional sculpture and became a chief exponent of the idealised nude, which later found favour with the Nazis. The newly renovated museum, in his former home and studio, mounts several exhibits per year with a focus on sculpture by Kolbe or his contemporaries, often juxtaposed with the works by contemporary artists.

The sculpture garden is an oasis of tranquillity and the cafe one of the nicest in a Berlin museum. The museum is located in far western Charlottenburg, about 2km southeast of the Olympiastadion.
