As a fan of sculpture, I was excited to see that Frankfurt has a sculpture museum. However, that excitement ended shortly after entering. The museum is quite small. There are a few interesting pieces, such as a sarcophagus, mummy masks, and Roman busts. However, there...More

The place itself is a little magic and beautiful, and the views of the city great. The main collection has beautiful sculptures and they offer very good exhibitions, like in this case - Kentdrige, a contemporary South African artist. Definitely worth visiting.

At first it seems an odd, narrow scope, but this museum is a gem and very well done. From ancient Egypt to the 19th century and even some modern sculptures. We especially appreciated the current special exhibit in questionable acquisition of art objects (and in...More

I initially went in to view the Riemenschneider but was also drawn to their other sculptures. A truly remarkable museum. Parking (limited) available on streets.
