  • The Museum für Moderne Kunst (MMK) is a "Museum for modern Art". The MMK is not one Museum, actually it is separated in 3 Musuems. So they are called MMK1, MMK2, MMK3. You have to pay entry for each o...  more »
  • The Museum of modern art in Frankfurt is an institution. The temporary exhibitions are really good graduation, but also the Dauerausstelung is worth a visit.

  • The Museum is located in a splendid building. Unfortunately, we were not as impressed by it showed up. A lot of photographs by local artists. Not so much contemporary art.

  • 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!
