  • A unique aspect of this museum is its collection of everyday items we often take for granted, and the explanations of why designers gave them the shape they did. Featured are items from the Bauhaus.....  more »
  • We went here to see the exhibition on amateur photography (which was very good) but found the museum itself to be somewhat chaotic. There is a huge variety of exhibitions and collections inside but...  more »
  • Is a very interesting museum. It is worth visiting it. If you are in Hamburg, you should not miss the chance. There are a variety of great art inside this place!! I was amazed to be honest. I did not give it 5 stars, because some parts of the museum had a bit not super interesting stuff. In all cases it deppends :) if you have children then the whole family will find something cool inside for sure :)
  • Extremely interesting museum with so much to see that it would take several days to take it all in. The combination of arts and trade offers several ways of exploring the rich history of German and European art. Excellent presentation with lots of visual and auditive information as so often in a German museum. The collection of historical keyboard instruments (including harpsichords and pianofortes) is extensive and world-famous.
  • This is truly enjoyable museum. So much to see, from Greek antique pottery to art nouveau and industrial design. I only had 3 hours to visit, but it's well worth spending an entire day. The collections are varied and extremely interesting. One of the most enjoyable museums of its kind I've seen so far.
  • Incredibly close to the bus and train central stations this museum offers a very nice experience either you are familiar or not with Design, photography, ancient Egypt, east Asian and Islamic art. Story of design? Of course, you name it. Don't forget to go to the Cafe inside.
  • Very good museum. Wide variety of exhibits. Good, detailed information. You can learn here if you are not careful. Plan to spend 3 to 4 hours easy.
