Closed due to reconstruction

DAM will be closed from 27 SEPT for renovation and refurbishment. Events will still take place digitally and live, but externally. We will keep you informed about the interim location “DAM Ostend” and other guest venues.


The Frankfurt Book Fair and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) are presenting the jointly initiated International DAM Architectural Book Award for the thirteenth time.


Wie wird Frankfurt im Jahr 2099 aussehen? Eine spannende Frage. Wir wollen die Zukunft selbst in die Hand nehmen und unsere Stadt der Zukunft bereits heute bauen. Was sind unsere Utopien? Was entsteht, wenn viele verschiedene Visionen zusammentreffen? Gemeinsam mit dem Youtuber Josef Heinrich Bogatzki (aka. TheJoCraft) haben wir die Idee entwickelt, das Spiel Minecraft zu nutzen, um gemeinsam ein urbanistisches Szenario “Frankfurt 2099” zu realisieren.

DAM Digital

We are happy that events can take place live and on site again. But we will also continue to come to your home digitally…

Plan. Werk. Stadt.

The DAM is being renovated and will be closing its doors for the foreseeable future. But when one door closes, another one opens. Starting in January, we will be back with exhibitions and events at the “DAM Ostend” on Danziger Platz. But in the meantime, you don’t have to do without building culture education. Quite the opposite! Equipped with ideas and materials, we will visit you wherever you need us. We are looking forward to an eventful (interim) time with you. 

Become a friend

The Gesellschaft der Freunde des Deutschen Architekturmuseums e.V. (Friends of DAM) was founded in 1985 and supports DAM in the realization of its public duties, both in ideal form and materially. Can we count on you too?

One Room. One Building. One City.

The DAM for kids and young people

Architecture is not self-explanatory. The significance of architecture merits interpretation and comment. Be it searching for traces in the urban space, a journey through time in the permanent exhibition “From primitive hut to sky-scraper”, or as a master builder on the LEGO building site — the aim of the museum’s educational events is to help people discover the world that’s on the doorstep, finetune their (aesthetic) perception and understand the language of architecture.
