I loved the exhibitions and overall was pleased to have visited. I was saddened though that two or three of the guards/staff walking around seemed to be either 'anti-foreigners', 'homophobic' or plain rude. They were rude in German (of which, I only know a little) and looked at us with evil eyes for whatever reason. Go - explore but the... More

We had the pleasure of going to the Museum for Angewandte Kunst yesterday. Located near to the Dom, the museum's collection spans the centuries, showcasing furniture, metal work, ceramics, glass and more. All the items in the collection are well lit and displayed with descriptions for each item. We were very pleased to take time to experience the museum and... More

Covers both older and more contemporary design objects. Helpful timeline throughout museum and most interesting part is last 50 or 60 years. Furniture, radios, cameras, televisions, telephones and other pieces offer a fascinating coverage of design concepts.

I went there because I had the museum card and some time to spend... otherwise I would not go to such museum, but I was not disappointed. There is a section ( don't know if it is always there or was a temporary exhibition) about 20 century art/design for everyday use.I really enjoyed that part! Like a time machine.It is... More

I really enjoyed seeing this museum. On the ground floor there were samples of beautiful furniture that have remained as classics, such as the Marcel Breuer chair, and Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe's Barcelona Chair. In the upper floor I enjoyed seeing the art glass, the porcelain and the Art Nouveau piano. The Art Deco furniture was also beautiful.

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.
