  • Very rich and clearly arranged exhibition about the Robotics of the history in the future. Abundant information of various kinds including videos. Well made and suitable also for children.

  • The Vitra Campus is beautiful and cared for. The Vitra Design Museum is amazing for the quality and quantity of design pieces of furniture found in the permanent collection. The permanent collection is very wide and the pieces are exhibited to the public. The stores downstairs are still equipped with very large windowed walls, so you can understand the vastness and the absolute value of the collection. The temporary exhibition (in my case Dieter Rams) is inserted into a very limited space and so may contain a few pieces. The Museum is very interesting for designers and architects but may be interesting for design lovers in General. The temporary exhibition as mentioned is very limited. This information could be clearer from the organization.

  • Interesting discovery to the French-German border. The exposed elements are very often well executed and a number of furniture can perfectly fit in your apartment. Very nice surprise!

  • I hate to give such a cool place 2 stars but for what we paid and got for it I can't go higher. The place is cool and we loved seeing the furniture. If you are going to pay for anything do that. The museum was a waste. A total waste. I guess it depends on the exhibit but it's not worth it to me and I go to tons of museums. The best part was the Vitra center which is free and worth the trip. The build is very cool and really fun. The store is very expensive but there are some cute small things you can buy. If all we did was see the chairs and the free center I would give it a 4. But 11 euros to see chairs in a garage is still a bit of a rip off.
  • Loved this place, we spent 6 (!) hours here. The architectural tours are fantastic. Really impressive how they managed to put all these buildings together without one outshining the other.
  • This place is worth a visit. I usually don't go to the museum itself, as the shop is astonishing and the café really nice, so no need to get inside the small but well done museum.
  • An architectural landmark with cozy views to hills covered with vineyards. Multiple floors of Vitra productions laid out to try and buy. Information about company, designers available in at least german, english, french.
  • Must visit if you love design and are around. Also check out the Vitra Haus.
