Permanent exhibit here is pretty small, but that have some great traveling and special exhibits like the annual German Architecture Prize finalists or "Offenbach is almost all right" which is on now. You'll enjoy if you care about architecture.

the architechture museum is basically ok, especially when there is the LEGO playground for children, which happens usually once in a year.

There are 4 floors, 3 of which are reserved for exhibitions, 1 is for the permanent collection. One needs to study architecture to be even remotely interested in those exhibitions, and the permanent collection is for the for amusement of school children, or people who...More

German architectural history is very rich, but don't think you find a lot of it in this museum. It is small, and I suspect also their budget is small since the exhibitions are very basic and really not worth spending any money for.
