Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt

The Museum houses one of the world's leading art collections. A tour of the applied art of different epochs and world religions encompasses furniture and carpets, graphic art, jewellery and objects of table culture. The exhibits reflect the aesthetic values and ideals of beauty in their respective time. At the same time, the objects testify to the outstanding quality of the artistic vision, craftsmanship and economic power. The exhibits are displayed in a way best suited to highlight the special artistic features of these so-called everyday objects.

The collections span 5,000 years of applied art and comprise European Applied Art from the 12th until the 21st century, Design, Book Art and Graphic Art, Islamic and East Asian Art as well as international Product Design.


A particular highlight is the new installation of the Historic Villa Metzler with its nine period rooms spanning the Baroque to Art Nouveau. Precious gold work of the 16th to the 20th centuries from the István Heller Donation is on view in the Silver Gallery.


Guided tours and workshops are an opportunity to explore all aspects of the permament and temporary exhibitions in greater detail. Guided tours are available in different languages and for all age groups.
