We had a really nice time in this lovely museum. We were fortunate enough to visit it during "The Divine Comedy" exhibition, that was weird, odd, strange, surreal and stunning at the same time. Tickets was 12 Euros, reduced to 6 Euros, thanks to the wonderful Frankfurt Card. Give yourself 60-90 minutes to fully enjoy the museum.

This is really a nice and perfect building for a modern art museum. They have really good instalations and paintings, the only thing that is missing is a little more information about the art work, but in general is a pretty nice museum if you are into modern art. The last saturday of every month there is no entrance fee.

This is a small museum, well designed by Hans Hollein who knew how to combine the different parts of the building with it's exhibitions to a whole one big game.

The building design is quite interesting. When I visited there was one special exhibit for the entire building. Nothing from the current exhibit was showing. As for the special exhibit, The Devine Comedy, not worth the 12 euro admission fee.

Modern art is really about personal choice. Some of it I got and some I most certainly didn't. A pleasant ramble about the place and not too busy. I am not going to tell what a saw but will leave that to you. Not worth the full entrance fee mind you so get a travel card with half price reduction... More

the museum is small but with very interesting modern art. Worth to spend an hour under cold weather!

There's not much in this museum, so it didn't take too long to walk through it. I'm glad I didn't have to pay to get in.

Strange museum, with strange exposes. Maybe its because I don't understand the modern art, but I wasn't the only confused person in this place.

I thought this museum was awful. There wasn't a single piece of art I wanted to see. Overall, the quality of museums in Frankfurt was less than I expected and certainly worse than Berlin or Munich - no real comparison- but is one was the worst. The fish place across the street was good for lunch though!
