Monet and Impressionists

We spent a great couple hours wandering through, with the thrill of seeing Monet, Manet, Sisley, Degas . . . It was well organized and not too crowded.

A great museum displaying a range of art from 1300 onward with works from many famous artists including Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Monet. The audio guide was very good and provided a great deal of detail into history selected pieces and their artists. The museum is also located in the Sachsenhausen district of Frankfurt which has a large number... More

I went to the 16th Century art on the third floor and the contemporary art in the basement. A vast selection of art and the renovated space displays the perfect surrounds for such world-class artworks.

The Staedel is an utterly average museum with a few good pieces and a lot of average ones - and some mediocre ones - completely transformed by the excellent (but temporary) exhibition "Monet and the Birth of Impressionism" - which, contrary to many reviews, is not just about Monet but includes equally good examples of the work of other impressionists.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Staedel Museum this afternoon. The current main attraction is the Monet exhibition, which includes many artworks from the beginnings of impressionism (including works by Degas, Pissarro, Renoir, and Manet). The cafe is lovely for a quick coffee before visiting the exhibition, and the book store is excellent. Many lovely books, postcards, and guides... More

Is right on the river walk. There are many other museums along the walk, which is quite beautiful. When I was there, they had a Monet exhibit.

Went on short notice to see Monet exhibition. There was quite a line to purchase tickets but at least we got tickets. Impressive exhibition. Unfortunately rather crowded but I guess that was to be expected on a rainy saturday afternoon. Permanent exhibition is very well worth a visit. If you plan on going to see specific works of art, find... More

Arrived to a long line for tickets. It was a bout a 40-minute wait. Later realized it was for the Monet exhibit. Numerous artworks on display including other impressionist as well. Old master section also commendable. I used an the staedel app from the playstore on my tablet. It was adequate enough for the museum highlight pieces.

We visited this museum in late March to view the Monet Art Exhibit, and we were impressed. We had an English speaking tour guide, who provided lots of background about Monet, and his painting style. The museum also has a gourmet restaurant attached, which is accessible within the museum without having to exit out to the street. The food is... More
