Museum of Applied Arts

The Museum Angewandte Kunst or in English the Museum of Applied Arts has sat beautifully along the south side of the River Main on Museum Row since 26 April 2013. This museum is used as a template to exhibit applied arts from the past, present and future.  Furthermore, the museum’s concept is A Space of Possibility. It explores our developments in society with an emphasis on art and fashion.

Begin by walking the museum grounds and find a world of inspiration.  Next, enter the modern building and find yourself surrounded by crisp clean lines, open space and loads of light. Finally, it has a specular interior that  inspires you before you even enter an exhibition on display.

I finally set foot into this amazing museum during the Museumsuferfest. On display: Sagmeister & Walsh Beauty, Contemporary Muslin Fashions, The Colour of Jade and Eternity. 2500 Years of Chinese Celadon Ceramics, Richard Meier: A style Room, Style Rooms from the Collections and Dieter Rams: A Style Room. Each of these exhibitions stood strong in their own space and encouraged you to experience the exhibition using all your senses. A full body experience if you will.

I highly recommend it for the whole family. Kids will most definitely appreciate this space.

Good to know:

  • Emma Metzler is a fantastic little cafe in the museum grounds.  Also it has a green space out front for the kids to run around while you quietly have a coffee
  • be sure to head into beautiful Sachsenhausen and explore its streets and all it has to offer
