  • it had a wonderful exhibition by Fiona Tan, beautiful presentation. the building is outstanding, loved my visit 
  • It's designed by Hans h line. Building exterior is similar to cake and said. Looks like cake was cut and composed various elements building facade, the place is surrounded by three-way road, enjoy the look. Rheme offers many tourist visiting the Town Hall about 3 minutes walk away. Recommended to anyone interested in architecture.

  • Worth going to as this modern building, localy called the "slice of cake" is interesting. The architetture is unusual. As for the exhibits, they are always interesting to look at.

  • Awesome museum for modern and "weird" art. The exhibitions are very interesting and often involve interactive elements making the spectator part immerse himself into the art piece. If you're searching for the kind of art that makes you think, question - even question where art begins and ends - and most importantly have fun, the MMK is a must have in Frankfurt. Usually 2-3h are a good time to spend at the MMK 2.
  • Really cool interior architecture. Many exhibitions for you to see. There's no audio guide and not all exhibitions have information sheets. There's no guide or sequence so walk as you wish. Enter and buy your ticket on the left counter. Get the combi ticket for MMK 1,2 and 3 In case you don't know, there are three modern art museums. 1 and 3 are next to each other. 2 is nearer to the Euro tower.
  • Loved loved this place. A matchless collection of works by the greatest contemporary artists of our time. Do not miss this place if you're in Frankfurt.
  • I liked most of the art, some I did not like. So... like any modern art museum.
  • Very enjoyable, saw two different exhibits and they were both interesting, but my favorite by far is the architecture of the building itself!
