The Wahnfried House - formerly Richard Wagner's residence - houses a permanent exhibition on the life and work of the great music dramatist and on the history of the Bayreuth Festival. After a three-year construction period, the Richard Wagner Museum presents itself completely new with an extension and three permanent exhibitions.
The three focal points of the exhibitions are:
- In the Wahnfried House: Life, Work and Work of Richard Wagner
- In the Siegfried Wagner House: History of Ideology
- In the new building: Performance history of the Bayreuth Festival
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bayreuth Festival, Haus Wahnfried, which is located at the edge of the Hofgarten, was opened in 1976 as the Richard Wagner Museum and National Archive.
