This is a special museum for lovers of cultural history – specifically photography, handicrafts and design. The permanent exhibition is international – you’ll be treated to pieces from ancient Greece, China and more. Highlights include East Asian ceramics, Jugendstil posters and photography, plus furnishings, fashions and textiles from a range of countries and periods. In addition to the massive permanent collection, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe also hosts temporary exhibitions so deserves a few hours to properly explore.
Very interesting museum for designers. Lots of old and interesting advertising, graphic design, and interior design. Another interesting feature is the building architecture. Common in Hamburg, but interesting for a visitor. I could have stayed longer but I think my mom was bored to death.
This museum of arts is a must for arts lovers, and it's reasonable for a ticket. You'll find it near the Hauptbahnhof, and close to many other attractions in Hamburg. It's perhaps not for everyone as it's a little different and just has fine art and decorative art displayed, for example there's a lot of porcelain on display.
