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

museum of sculptures in a lovely old building. roman and greek statues, then Egyptian mummies, next lots of less interesting catholic style idols. the very top floor was laid out like the building was still being lived in, make sure you don't miss this as you have to go through closed doors to the stairs, they want the door closed...

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.

The permanent collection consists mainly of altars, altar pieces and sculptures of saints made in middle age. Some highlights are to be pointed out: sculptures of Veit Stoss, Tilman Riemenschneider and a large majolica altar by Andrea della Robbia. The most wonderful part of visiting this museum was the Greek ancient sculptures exhibition,hosted temporarily until May 26 2013 by this... More

This great sculpture collection is housed in an old villa. It is a huge, fascinating collection. I highly recommend it.

We were disappointed by our visit, not because of the exhibits, which were interesting, but we had hoped to see more of the original building and inside it was much like an other museum. The main reason we will not return, however, were the aggressively officious security guards who were demanding that anyone with a jacket or cardigan over their... More

This museum is fascinating for a wide range collection of sculputes from sumerian period up to neoclassicism. The layout is wonderful and the labels are in both german and english. A true pleasure!

This sculpture collection is nothing other worldly, it has way too much decorative art for my taste, but if you go to Frankfur before Septmeber 23, 2012 DO NOT MISS THE JEFF KOONS EXHIBITION, they have spread de Koon's pieces around the whole exhibition space, it is mixed with their permanent collection and it is really something to see all...

I didn't have a lot of time so I got there basically when they opened in the morning... I had ALMOST enough time...but I'm recommending over 3hrs... More
