  • Eastward from the Museum Giersch to the Angewandte Kunst Museum Museum Museum dropped during the tour. I think Museum diorama building consisting of modern architecture in the style of architecture of medieval Europe and the Islamic world and Europe, not just in Germany, including the Japanese base, building no, dioramas and photos only... also commentary is in English, but also architectural terms it has, so the muscle only understand shikiranai. Style and exhibits, such as his end of the diorama so would poor digestion. Admission is EUR 2.5 in the Frankfurt card. (Cash only. )

  • For showing architecture, one needs space. And here, there is not much of it. The exhibit of the development of achitecture during human history is interesting but in the end very simplified. 
  • Beautiful architectural museum. Central position, near the river. This museum is perfect for architecture lovers!
