Booked on line, which was well worth it so I did not have to wait to enter. Inside the Museum, it was uncomfortably hot and there were too many people let in, way too crowded.

I visited the museum on a Sunday at 12:00 and I only had to wait in line for 10 mins without already having purchased a ticket online. Compared to waiting in line at a museum in Paris, this was a dream! They were very organised too. The exhibition was stunning. It was a great insight into the Impressionism era, and... More

I visited mainly to see the Monet exhibition, but also explored the remainder of the fairly comprehensive permanent exhibitions. The Monet exhibition attracted many impressive impressionist paintings, but most were from Monet’s friends and contemporaries with fairly weak connections between the paintings. A more structured exhibition would’ve been stronger. The museum has an impressive coverage of the Old Masters (German,... More

I wouldn't classify this as one of the best art museums in the world. If you are from London, NY, Paris etc. you won't be amazed by this place. However, given that Frankfurt is not a great city for tourism, I do not regret taking an hour and half to visit. The impressionism exhibit is fairly extensive though in my... More

The museum felt like it had the air conditioning going and this was in December. Upper floors have the older traditional artists and some beautiful wood carved pieces but the lower floors were a disappointment. This is where the modern artist pieces are exhibited. To call a black (could have been gesso) painted canvas art is pushing it even for... More

The Staedel offers a wide range of art with a very good special exhibition of paintings of impressionism. It's worth to to a tour with an audio guide ! Don't do the whole museum in one day - just pick on or two topics your are interested in.... The restaurant Holbein's on the side is a safe bet as well........ More

I visited this museum mainly for the Monet collection. The exposition was horrible there was no plan or map to understand where were the different painters. There were a lot of groups which were too numerous and didn't allow us to see a lot of paintings. There was no sense in the organization of the exposition, it was impossible to... More

Big museum with all important masters of painting. You need at least 4 hours to see all. Nice shop with good art books.

I did like a lot the hall excibition , all the paintings of Monet and the other imbressionists. It was amazing (the only better excibition of imbressionists is at Musee d Orsai). The incovenient is the queue and the majority of people in the museum.You can't enjoy the excibition.
