The Liebieghaus was not on my radar but I happened upon it when I noticed the clock tower through trees as I walked along the River. A beautiful villa in such peaceful surroundings. The museum grounds are accented with grey, stone columns and statues among the rich colours from the daffodils and tulips. The entrance fee was €7: Bags are... More

Not a huge museum, but the Athens exhibition was amazing. The permanent display had some beautiful peaces as well. The garden was gorgeous. Certainly worth a visit.

I knew that this museum was in a historic house and was excited to look around it but once inside the house part of the museum, I was disappointed to find that most of the beauty of the house had been walled over. There were a few areas where a little of the original house was viewable at the ceiling... More

When we visited not everything was accessible which was disappointing but there was no fee so that was fair. To wander around what was a home and see a variety of sculpture plus the furniture and architecture was very interesting. The cafe was in lovely courtyard so it offered some quality quiet time which one appreciates after being a tourist... More

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
