  • The opportunity to visit was a show on Hokusai manga really complete and well built, and. I like Hokusai, minus the manga, but I was well impressed. In addition to substantial permanent exhibitions exhibition.: from furniture to musical instruments to design objects. Amazing view on sneakers. Museum not to be missed.

  • 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.
