The Museum der Brotkultur Ulm comprises a collection of around 18,000 objects relating to the production and significance of basic foodstuffs. The exhibits include mainly technical and handicraft objects, but also paintings and sculptures as well as relics from earlier advanced civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Objects from Asian rice cultures and maize cultures in Latin America will also be exhibited.

Objects from the visual arts were also integrated into the museum. The focus is on works of art by Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Jan Flegel and Frans Francken from the 17th century. In addition, there are socially critical works by Pablo Picasso, Käthe Kollwitz and Max Beckmann, as well as works by contemporary artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joseph Beuys and Man Ray.

In 1952, the entrepreneur Dr. h. c. Willy Eiselen from Ulm began to collect bread-related objects together with his son Dr. Dr. h. c. Hermann Eiselen. Three years later they founded the "Deutsche Brotmuseum", the first of its kind in the world.

From the 1980s onwards, the museum received a new cultural and socio-historical orientation. In 1991 the "Vater und Sohn Eiselen Stiftung Ulm" took over the sponsorship of the museum. In 2002 it was renamed "Museum of Bread Culture".
