This was one of my favourite visits whilst in Frankfurt. I enjoy all things architecture, so when my partner advised a visit, it was a definite. There is a fantastic exhibition on just now (March 18), about Brutalism. Even if your not clued in architecture...More

I usually visit art museums, so this choice was exceptional for me, but I loved to get out of my comfort zone with some modern, inspiring exhibition about the contemporary architecture. I particularly enjoyed the temporary Brutalism exhibition, it is so well organized and explained...More

If this museum was free I'd recommend popping in for an hour, at most, if you have an interest in architecture. Personally we did not think it was worth the entry fee as the museum was small and we only found one of the exhibits...More

When we visited in December 2016, there was an AMAZING exhibit about adapting architectural elements to help overcome extreme habitats, such as very hot islands or very cold snowy mountains. I thought this was extremely interesting and we spent a few hours here just on...More

The German Architecture Museum (Deutsches Architekturmuseum) (DAM) is located on the Museumsufer in Frankfurt. It is housed in an 18th-century building, though only the outside wall were preserved and the interior has been re-designed by Oswald Mathias Ungers in 1984. It is like a set...More

I spent a couple of hours here. It's a small museum, but this exhibition is extraordinary. It describes what attributes a city has to make a good arrival destination for immigrants. Well thought out, with some interesting surprises. Buy the book, Making Heimat. In fact,...More

We went in with the expectation to learn about German architects or architecture, either old or new. The steep entry price for this small museum certainly increased our expectations, and the building itself has an interesting layout. Unfortunately, the only worthwhile thing was a floor...More

Permanent exhibit here is pretty small, but that have some great traveling and special exhibits like the annual German Architecture Prize finalists or "Offenbach is almost all right" which is on now. You'll enjoy if you care about architecture.
