  • The Liebighaus is a small musuem but with a fantastic collection of sculptures. They have a collection of Egyptian, Greek and Roman artifacts. This really surprised me. The statue of Alexander the Gre...  more »
  • Although the Museum is not far from the Städel Museum, it is here much quieter. Wrongly, because somehow a sculpture collection to francixx also belongs to an art museum. This supplement to the Städel is located here. And the collection can be really seen. There are here to find exhibits from ancient times to the Baroque. 19tes, 20th and 21st century is not represented here.

  • One of the few museums in Europe that concentrates only on sculptures. It contains more 3000 sculptures of all styles and periods. Lovely villa with a large garden owned by Baron von Libigu, textile magnate. It was built in 1890 and sold at a deep discount to the city after the death of Baron. I particularly like a compilation of works of the middle ages-very interesting.

  • Decent collections of sculptures from different periods of history and locations. Egypt collection is most impressive
  • One of the leading museums for sculptures in Europe. 3000 works from ancient times, so extraordinary. The collection is shown in an old elegant villa with a beautiful garden at Frankfurt's famous "Museumsufer". You have the feeling of diving into former times. Their exhibitions are amazing, curated by experts who really love art.
  • Great sculpture museum by the Main river front with an excellent cafe sitting on its garden.
  • A museum dedicated to sculpture. Had an awesome Athens exhibition when I was there, but also a permanent exhibit. It isn't huge, but some gorgeous works of art there nonetheless. The gardens are also beautiful.
  • Great museum about Greek history; I learned a lot. Though as an american visiting Germany, I wish I had known of the huge European art museum down the street with historically famous European art.
