  • The quality of the exhibitions in this museum is extremely mixed-but for many the way here is worthwhile because of a single floor, so below is my detailed evaluation (as of June 2019): Special exhibition Bangladesh: Very mixed, because no common thread Recognizable what the architecture in this country looks like, but individual elements are exciting special exhibition at the Architecture Prize: Only a few display boards and no visit worth special exhibition Neues Frankfurt: Very successful, well prepared in the media, lots of information, great Exhibits permanent exhibition: Extremely old baking, plus little info, in about a third of the showcases the lighting is defective! but. Thematically and successfully completed by the construction, here is a renovation urgently needed special exhibition theater decoration: Only something for very interested parties, the connection to architecture opens up to me not special exhibition photo competition: Wicable, but not a highlight. Conclusion: The exhibition "Neues Frankfurt" alone justifies the visit!
