  • I visited the museum recently and had a great time there, stunning works of some of the greatest artists in history are there to see!  more »
  • Unfortunately, this museum is quite crowded, so that it is not always possible to create "muesum mood." Otherwise, almost every art lover will find something here between Old Masters and contemporary art, whereby at the end of the day we lacked the time to adequately appreciate all areas, but impresses the collection as a whole!

  • One of the best art museums. If you are in Frankfurt, consider visiting this place. You can vitness around 2000 arts, including classic and modern. The museum has enough space to sit and relax. The entire area is very silent. If you are a person who like arts, then it is must go place for you. I liked and recommend it.
  • They seem rather light on recent decades but provide a nice overview over centuries. Also there are a few niches dedicated to local painters. The temporary exhibitions are usually very well explained and put in context. Often something not seen easily somewhere else (e.g., Picasso's Lithography).
