I had a wonderful few hours to spend before heading to the Frankfurt Airport. I arrived there around 11am on Saturday and it was not crowded at all, i.e., no waiting lines unlike some other museums (e.g., Louvre or Orsay in Paris). I had 3 hours before leaving for the airport, and within these 3 hours, I could see their... More

Not a very large collection, but outstanding works, for instance by Rembrandt and the Dutch Masters, the Impressionist, the German Romantic School and the German Expressionists.

I went alone and bought the audio-guide. It made a great difference since to the understanding of the pieces. It is a medium-sized museum, I think I spend three hours and a half there. Even the contemporary art, which I do not appreciate very easily, was interesting.

The museum contains a large variety of work such as masterpieces, modern, and contemporary art. I liked so much the detailed illustrations of the paintings specially those telling "Simson and Delilah" story. The masterpieces are so good, but some of them represent the brutality in the medieval ages. Overall it is a must see place if you like to watch... More

I thought I would put in a good word for this museum because I assume that many people visit Frankfurt for trade shows, other business and in transit, but not to visit museums. Now that I see how many excellent ratings this museum has, maybe it's not necessary. I will just say it's an excellent artistic oasis in a beautiful... More

What a pleasant way to spend a hot afternoon! This museum offers visitors works from some of the greatest painters in history: Van Gogh, Degas, Monet, Rembrant, Renoir, etc. But perhaps it's most beautiful galleries are on the lowest levels, and those are dedicated to modern artists. These are the pieces that you stand in front of and contemplate. ALL... More

It is a nice enough museum if you're in the neighborhood but don't expect it to be on par with the world famous museums. They have some lesser-known works by major artists like Rodin, Chagall, Picasso and Klee, and a large collection of modern art, which is not my cup of tea. We were there with the kids (24 Euros...

This is a must see if you are in Frankfurt. We came here because of the Monet exhibit -- which was ok, but the regular work in the museum outshone it -- especially modern art collection on the lower level.

This gallery is fantastic and is definitely worth the €14 entry free for an adult. There are an immense amount of artworks on display, a large proportion of which are well explained with panels in both German and English. Personally I found the Renaissance and Neoclassical works at the top level to be the most engaging, but there was a... More
