Modern Art

For those interested in modern and contemporary art, the museums on or near the embankments of the river Main regularly present distinctive exhibitions that encourage visitors to engage with key aspects of art. The MUSEUM MMK FÜR MODERNE KUNST (Museum of Modern Art) and the SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT are supported by several smaller exhibition centres and galleries that define the character of the Museum Embankment in their uncompromising approach to art issues.
