  • The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg is housed in a former vocational school directly to Hamburg central station. Just like the somewhat ambiguous name, it suggests, the collection is not as accurately determined. In addition to fashion and musical instruments, porcelain, jewelry, and other cultural goods in this museum finds himself. Impressive and rooms, entsprechedn established the epoch are the real highlight. Here you can feel history. Even if the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe doesn't belong to the museums in the first row, so it is a Museum for the second or third Hamburg visit or for a rainy weekend in Hamburg.

  • A beautiful museum that cannot comprehend per visit. A beautiful collection of Antiquities: a little Egypt, much of Greece, there are Rome and Etruscans are unique. Interesting composition Baroque interiors of different years 18 century. Modest but exquisite composition of Japan-tea house. There are artifacts of Asian countries-China, Iran, for example. Visited with interest the collection "main style." On the top floor-temporary exhibitions. I advise you to choose, if in no time at all on interest.

  • Large museum with plenty of interesting things to see. Ticket price for me was €12 and the price was worth it. I gave myself 2 hours to look around and I only explored 2 out of 3 floors. The facility is very nice and most of the exhibit descriptions are in both English and German. I would go again.
  • One of my favorite museums in Hamburg. They organize wonderful exhibitions, for example sneaker exhibition, tattoo exhibition. Currently it's worth to check the exhibition of an illustrator Christoph Niemann. Go visit if you're a tourist in Hamburg and keep on revisiting if you live in Hamburg!
  • One of the most amusing museums i've ever been to, Its a mix between old art and modern art. Price isn't to high. Super interesting exhibitions. And to top it off super great staff, I wanted to purchase a book, but they only had german copies, they searched everywhere they could but unfortunately couldn't find any. I just missed out on the sneaker expedition so there where no posters for that expo available to buy, the lovely lady at the cashier made some phone calls for the poster, and they gave one to me for free! Really recommend this museum!
  • Very messy and chaotic museum. The staff was very agitated and not helpful.
  • Wonderful exhibits. As a heads up, they do not allow backpacks in.
