After visiting Staedel Museum, take a break at this museum cafe (on the terrace if weather permits) and then give it an hour to visit the collections. A very good selection of sculptures.

Liebieghaus is a beautiful building in itself. It contains a sculpture museum, with a lot of sculptures dating from Egyptian, through Roman and up to Renaissance. Its layout makes it easy to view all sculptures, and since it is not a big museum, you can take your time to examine the items, without getting overwhelmed. Definitely worth a visit!!

We went because it was close by but we had not idea how amazing it would be. To see sculpture very large and very small, some over 100 years old was just incredible. It it laid out in a way that makes it very easy to take you time and see each item. I was amazed that these pieces of... More

We spent a solid three hours at the Liebieghaus Sculpture Museum along "Museum Row" across the Main river. We enjoyed the time looking at the sculpture from prehistoric times through post Medieval period. We rented the audio tour and found it very helpful and added to the experience. Even without it, there is a lot of English for non-German speaking... More

My husband and I love sculptures and try to visit as many museums as possible while in Europe. This museum did not disappoint. Very interesting collection with a wide range. We went there late on a Thursday night and we were literally the only visitors in the museum. It was a perfect way to start our trip. It doesn't take... More

1/2 the museum was not accessible to the public, they didn't offer a reason as to why, nor was there a discount to the price but what we could see was really nice. I found the staff snooty, but for the most part just ignored them.
