The exhibition was small for being a national museum. Staff was not friendly (some of them even aggressive) in the exhibition halls. I think it does not worth the time to visit this place. The museum covers only a small fraction of German architecture, and...More

DAM is a place to visit if you are in Frankfurt. The quality of their exhibitions are mostly the reason why we come once year. And the actual "playboy architecture" is really one of "not to miss"
