MMK - Museum of Modern Art is located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is one of the world's most important museums of Modern Art. Although it is still a relatively new institution, it has already made itself known all around the world.
The building MMK 1 by Viennese architect Hans Hollein is among the most extraordinary buildings of post-Modernism. Due to its triangular shape, locals like to refer to it as the 'piece of cake'. There are two further exhibition rooms besides MMK 1.
In building the Museum of Modern Art the city of Frankfurt filled the gap within the city's cultural life, namely the missing of a centre for contemporary art. At the beginning, the museum started with a foundation of pieces by Karl Stöher and Rolf Ricke. Now it holds around 5,000 pieces of national and international art. For the museum's 20th anniversary it was arranged for the collection to be digitalized and made available online.
- The day pass at Museum of Modern Art is €16 making it one of the 3 cheapest tourist Attractions in Hesse.
