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.

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
