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

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.
