This museum contains many excellent exhibits in an impressive villa set in pleasant grounds. Many exhibits are of Greek or Roman origin and you probably get more out of your visit if you know something about ancient mythology or you hire an autoguide. The exhibits are very well displayed in a number of rooms often with side rooms off those... More

We went to see an exhibition of Ancient Greek art. It was extremely well put together, though it was strange that some of the captions were bilingual (German & English), whereas others were German only. While we thoroughly enjoyed the art, the building that houses it is well worth seeing, too.

Of all the museums we've visited during our 2 weeks stay in Frankfurt, this museum was our favorite. Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Asian .... it's all in one roof! Don't forget to get an audio guide!

From the outside this villa looks and feels impressive set in nice grounds, there was a special exhibition on about Athens, so much of the usual artefacts aren't on show. At 10 euro it is a tad expensive, given the size and compared to other museums, but what's on display is interesting and fantastic. A pleasant way to spend an... More

The place is grand .. From the outside! Very promising special exhibition about Athens. Inside : small rooms, explanations only in German for the artworks, guided tours see you as disturbance, signage to the collection is not least clear, regrets. And expensive compared to the Staedel next door. What a pity !

The building itself is quite spectacular, a 19th century riverside mansion with a pretty garden. The collection inside is beautiful, ranging thorough all periods of sculpture up to late 18th century. English explanations are very minimal. On our recent visit, most of the medieval pieces were in storage to make room for a fabulous exhibit about the building of the... More

This is an old villa, which is transformed now to a sculpture museum. It has a wide range of sculpturs, from old Egypt, through Greek and Roman periods, till today. We visited a very interesting special exhibition about the FRench rococo. Amazing sculpturs!

This smaller museum is an absolute delight. There are 3 floors, each holding their own surprises, and is exceptionally well curated. On the first floor, and following on from ecclesiastic gothic there is a room with dark heavy curtains, which takes the visitor from the 1500's straight to the 1700's. The upper floor contains some tiny beautiful porcelain statues and... More

It's an interesting sculture museum, very near the other famous museums in the city. The downside is that you have to pay to get in. It's small, you can finish it in one hour.

It had a nice collection of statues and different types, Asian and Eygptian, then of course the classical ones. It is small but we didn't go to the bottom area - couldn't find it where they stored them. If you have time check it out.
