  • Was hoping for an overview of the architecture in General, styles, eras, etc.. It hardly offers the Museum. Indeed, special exhibitions are shown on three of the four floors are just more or less interesting: I found myself extremely interesting exhibition of concrete architecture in the ground floor. M.E., the Museum is more something for professionals who already have the basic knowledge and are interested in the special exhibitions. I am interested in architecture, would have liked but as a professional, not more basics. Nevertheless, the visit was interesting and I regret having spent not the €9 entrance.

  • We are extra for the exhibition: woman architect moved to Frankfurt in the "German architecture Museum" and were not disappointed. On 4 levels, we could inform us about different areas of the architecture. Very worthwhile! We like to come back!
