This museum has a broad collection of applied art from long time ago to recent times. There is both German and English explanations with the items on display. If you have been to other applied art museums then the recent items will not be surprising to you.

I'm very interested in modern architecture and this place offered me nothing but a reason to leave. I bought the ticket to see systems and the permanent exhibitions and I really wish I didn't. The permanent exhibit was okay, it wasn't amazing, a couple of decent artefacts and a few very well decorated wooden wardrobes. Also there were barely any... More

This museum has great exhibitions, so if you are into modern architecture I would recommend considering the MAKK museum.

The permanent collection in MAKK consists of an admirable, timeline-based set of everyday use objects (furniture, tableware, electric and electronic devices and many more) which illustrate an evolution of material and taste. Great amusement and education.

Easily beats London's Design Museum. The museum takes you through a tour of design through the ages. The pieces on display have been chosen really well. The staff are really knowledgeable and welcoming. Highly recommended for all!

This amazing museum takes you trough time like a real "Time machine". It is well organized and the exhibition goes so smoothly from the Medieval art to Post modernism, that you finally will understand and make order in your knowledge about Art of Northern Europe. It was a great experience for me and I never felt bored or anxious to... More

Very impressed. It displays the things people used ( often the very rich) and covers about the last 800 years. The craftsmanship from the middle of the last century is mind blowing, especially the glass. And the silver. And the furniture. And the displays come right up to the present. We truly loved this museum. No crowds, extremely well done,... More

We visited the permanent exhibition of the museum for applied arts and we liked it! You can see a wide range of art crafts from all over the world, from medieval times to today, from furniture, to cutlery and jewelry. I normally don't enjoy this kind of exhibitions, but this one was different. You can really follow historically the development... More

The museum displays an impressive range of mediaeval, renaissance, baroque and classical art objects (furniture, glass, gems, etc.). The ground level holds a nice collection of 20th-century design objects with about any archetypical milestone, such as the red-blue chair by Rietveld and the seats by Mies van der Rohe. Also many industrial-design objects, such as vacuum cleaners and radios as... More
