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!

I have been to quite a few art and modern art galleries. I would say that the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt is about average. Like most modern galleries, there really aren't that many exhibits and you can do the place in an hour or so. Some of the art bored me, some was quite whimsical and some was... More

From the building to the exhibits this was a great art experience. Not a lot of english but not really necessary. Photography was allowed too. We have not stopped talking about the Franz West exhibit and the other permanent installations we found.

The museum exhibition is quite interesting because both the pernament collection and a contemporary exhibition are well arranged and contain a variety of art objects. Apart from paintings and sculptures I saw though-provoking and interactive installations, which were quite amusing. However, the most interesting museum pieces are Andy Warhol's paintings. Unfortunatelly the museum itself is rather small. After 90 minutes... More

The current exhibition is of the work of Franz West. As you walk into the exhibition space the introduction on the wall explains West's approach to art, particularly that art should be touched and used by its audience so that they are not just viewers, but users of the art, effectively creating their own interpretation of it. It goes on... More

We were more impressed with the facility than the art. This is a realitively new building. The gallery design and layout are very creative. Since there was little if any permanent collection on display your experience will vary with the quality of the visiting shows.
