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.

There was only one floor of the museum open when I visited. The part that I saw was interesting, particularly how they designed a couple of the skyscrapers in Frankfurt.

the museum is small and starts a little underwhelmingly but increases in interest as you move through it. The first two floors were given over to an exhibition on franco-german architecture in the 19th and 20th century, which was quite dry. It was however well set out and very informative for me (someone who knows little or nothing about the... More

Very cool location on the river bank and on the same cultural strip as a lot of other museums, so it's all very accessible and encouraging once you're there. The setup is okay, a bit expected and repeated and the exhibited work at the time of my visit was not very impressive, but generally, it's a decent place and the... More

Nice but small museum. What is attractive is that there are 4 or 5 more museums on this "Museumufer" (Main-river bank). And also it is nice to walk near the Main-river.

I'm not an architecture expert but I found very interesting this visit. The exhibition develops on 4 levels; gound floor is dedicated to sustainable and livable buildings. The projects and the pIctures are very clear and understandable. Also very interesting the UNESCO floor, whe you can find a selection of very well illustrated places in Germany making part of the...

Following the complete renovation of the building, the location itself is worth seeing. Changing exhibits are interesting and the main collection includes some great pieces.
