Artists are sorted by "Last name, First name" in the list for 'connecting to an image of this person', but the dropdown menu displays names as "first name last name". It is therefore impossible to type the first letters of the family name to get the entry we want, and we thus have to search for a name in the nearly 7000 lines of the drop-down menu. It would be far better to display names as "Last name, First name".

As the German museum system seems to be second to none in complexity, I create a thread to deal with it.

Germany is a federal country, so museums are usually run by the Länder with structures named "Staatliche Museen/Kunstsammlungen (zu) [name of the land]".

However, in almost each land, the Germans have divided their collections into several institutions. For instance, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin regroups not less than 19 museums. http://www.smb.museum/en/museums-and-institutions.html

In a bigger land like Bavaria, there are a different museum system as explained above in each big city of the land (I have found that for Munich and Augsburg). In Berlin, there are two different bodies with several museums affiliated (the Land and the City systems).

Moreover, several museums are sometimes hosted in the same buildings, an a museum can be split in different sites.

Finally, not all the museums in the Land belong to the State Museum structure. There are national and city museums.


So I will post here lists of museums by Land, with the links on the site. Several entries on the Athenaeum are not museums, but the governing bodies and there must be deleted - and the artworks linked to them must be linked with the correct museum.

German members of the Athenaeum can help!

EDIT:
1. Some museum groups have dependencies in several Lander, such as the Museumsstiftung Post und Telekommunikation (Berlin, Bonn, Frankfurt, and Nuremberg), or the Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg.

I have tried to ascertain where each artwork is located but the Royal Collection website (which is excellent) doesn't usually state the whereabouts - that is probably due to the collection being moved from one property to another or to the Queen's Gallery, London, where public exhibitions are held.

Yes, this is the main problem with the Royal collection. It sometimes happens with other institutions, such as with the two Titian recently bought by the National Galleries of London and Edinburgh as these works are routinely moved between both museums.

The German museum system is really a nightmare.

Currently, we have two entries for museums in Augsburg:
Staatsgalerie Altdeutsche Meister Augsburg: http://www.the-athenaeum.org/sources/detail.php?id=2713
Kunstsammlungen und Museen Augsburg: http://www.the-athenaeum.org/sources/detail.php?id=2153

The latter is just the name of the governing body of the Augsburg museums, but the former is a collection within a building called the Schaezlerpalais, which also hosts the Graphische Sammlung der Stadt Augsburg, the Karl und Magdalene Haberstock-Stiftung, and the Deutsche Barockgalerie.
So should I create different entries for all these collections (listed here: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_der … Augsburg), or just one for the Schaezlerpalais? Considering that there are at least five other art museums in the city.

As far as I understand, this system is pretty much the same in the other lander, with usually an old masters gallery, a new masters gallery, a center of contemporary art, a graphic cabinet, and several museums of history and design. These are frequently hosted in the same building, but run as separate museums under the rule of a governing body.
So what should we do with German museums?
