  • The Museum is located very conveniently. Next to the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) we were with the children. At the bottom there is a playroom for children. My deâm really enjoyed themselves to reconcile different outfits and then photographed. Built a small stage, the scenery can change, and take pictures. If you like the send by email. Older children can be left alone, under the supervision of a tutor, and calmly stroll through the halls. We especially remembered Hall. There is a piano, on which you can play yourself. A very interesting Museum! We were in it many times

  • If you are interested in beautiful objects and design in general, the museum is a must. Located a few steps from the Hauptbahnhof, it is easy to reach from anywhere in Hamburg. My particular interest ...  read more »
  • The museum is rather big with interesting objects: some beautiful and potentially useful, others less so. Worth a visit, if you are interested in design. 
  • 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 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!
  • 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!
  • Wonderful exhibits. As a heads up, they do not allow backpacks in.
  • It's costly for travelers, But location wise best,nearest to the ZOB & HBF
