This museum is one to give a miss. Especially at nine euros, In London Crossrail put on similar exhibitions about their architecture and usually they throw in some archaeology to liven it up. And then they charge a bit round zero for visitors. This exhibition would benefit from being free, as it would be a lot busier and it would... More

The exhibition was small for being a national museum. Staff was not friendly (some of them even aggressive) in the exhibition halls. I think it does not worth the time to visit this place. The museum covers only a small fraction of German architecture, and one floor only contains info about Frankfurt urban planning. Nothing special.

4.50 Euros (9 Euros if you don't have the Frankfurt Card) buys you entrance to a rather dull museum with weird exhibits that has nothing to do with architecture. The museum is rather small and part of it (on the top floor) is actually of another building - an old building. We were there on July and the old building... More

We did not plan to visit this museum but while walking to the “Museum for Communication” we were attracted by poste showing LEGO Exhibition. So we bought tickets and entered. There were some good items but the majority of the museums are normal stuff and do not worth visiting except if is your specialty area. We also realized that we... More

I actually just asked about parking out the front & unfortunately the lady behind the desk was so rude that we chose to cancel our visit.

First and foremost, this museum doesn't worth 9 euro. The exhibitions are poor and not interesting. Luckily I paid half price thanks to my student card. The temporary exhibition sounds very interesting on paper and it was about postmodern architecture. It was hard to understand the narrative of this exhibition, you can't learn anything about postmodern architecture and everything seems... More

As said, I enjoyed seeing this part of the museum, which presents 10 models of buildings from pre-history to the Commerzbank building. Apart from this, I would only recommend to people deeply interested in Architecture or modern art. And nothing is written in english. If you are going to more museums, ask for a special ticket, which gives you access... More

DAM is a place to visit if you are in Frankfurt. The quality of their exhibitions are mostly the reason why we come once year. And the actual "playboy architecture" is really one of "not to miss"

.. than 'DAM' is a must-do. Exhibitions are well planned and presented with greatest care. While the museum itself is rather small its content tends to kaleidoscopic expansion. Therefore bringing time is usually rewarded.
