I appreciated this museum not only for the literary value of being in the house where Goethe grew up and wrote some of his earliest works, but also because it's a very neat historical building too. The museum gives you an overview of Goethe's life and the history of the museum itself, and it has a very neat art gallery.

My understanding is that most of Frankfurt was demolished by Allied bombs during the second world war, but this house has somehow been restored authentically to its former glory. Its populated with historical furniture, and exhibits some unique paintings as well. Seems a very popular visit for anyone interested in Goethe. It definitely gives a visitor the feel of what...

This museum is combined to the Goethehaus. After enjoying the ambiance with colorful rooms with quality decorations from old days, then you can proceed to the museum building. Although it is not a massive museums, you would find some art works that lure your interest. It is within the walking distance from the city centre, and not too crowded. That... More

Went here after visiting Goethe Haus. There were some really nice paintings and busts on display. Worth visiting if you're already seeing Goethe Haus...wouldn't bother if you weren't already there though, there are better (and much larger) art museums in Frankfurt.

The museum was very hard to find as it's in a little side street. We were greet by rude cashiers who paid no attention to me at the counter. They had that stuck up attitude and aren't fit to work in a place where so many people come to visit. I was rudely told to lock my bags in a... More
