Scale models, plans and photographs housed in an 18th century villa - it's worth the effort to visit the museum only for these.

The German Architecture Museum

An extremely important DAM.

The German Architecture Museum ('Deutsches Architekturmuseum' or DAM) is one of the most important museums in the city and it's part of the museum embankment tour of 'Museumsufer'. Dedicated to the history and evolution of German architecture, it mainly focuses on modern trends and buildings of the 19th and 20th centuries. Inside this museum, there's a tour of more than 600 scale models, 160,000 plans and innumerable photographs on display throughout these artistic trends. They show works by historic architects such as the multitalented Frank Gehry, Archigram, Mies van der Rohe and Erich Mendelsohn. Located in an old 18th-century villa, this construction itself is a work of architecture to go and see. It was a project by the well-known architect Oswald Mathias Ungers. Close to bathing in the waters of the Main River, it's worth going just to see this building.
