The huge collection has over 180,000 drawings and 600 models that show both examples of aesthetic and functional architecture.

The museum's headquarters are in an 18th-century building. In 1984, its interior was demolished, and the entire facility was surrounded by a glass exhibition hall. The German architect and architectural theorist Oswald Mathias Ungers was responsible for the reconstruction of the building.

The facility is the publisher of the Yearbook of German Architecture, in which, since 1980, the changing jury presents a selection of outstanding architectural works from last year. The DAM prize has also been awarded since 2007, and the works of the winners are presented at the exhibition.
