  • It is very good that there is such a museum in Germany. Of course, there are no bright masterpieces there. Any provincial museum in Russia has a much more interesting collection. It's just a fairly limited collection (probably initially private), but giving a Westerner a general idea of what an icon is. It was very interesting to study explanatory tablets.

  • Very nice collection of icons. Good location almost on the banks of the Main. Beautiful architecture in and out. A must.

  • If you do like Christian Orthodox Art then this is the right place for you to be. This museum is pretty small but contains many Orthodox icons. The entry fee is just 4 Euros and for students it is only 2 Euros. Most of the works come from Russia 🇷🇺, but they have also Orthodox art from countries like Romania 🇷🇴 and Greece 🇬🇷. They have also art pieces from the Coptic community in Egypt 🇪🇬 and from the Christians from Syria 🇸🇾. This museum also has a quite unique collection of Ethiopian Orthodox art 🇪🇹 in an own room. The museum is not that large and most people spend just half an hour here. But it is still quite interesting if you appreciate the Orthodox art.
  • A very nice albeit small museum showing various Russian, Greek, and Syrian Orthodox artworks. Many interesting items dating around the 18-19th centuries are available as well. The staff are cordial and English speaking but most descriptions are only available in German although some English pamphlets are available for exhibits. An hour long visit is enough to see everything in one go. Definitely worth the time!
