Porzellan Museum Frankfurt presents the most extensive publicly accessible collection of Höchst faiences and porcelain. Since 1994, as a branch of the Historisches Museum the museum has been housed in the glorious townhouse of the Kronberg family built between 1577 and 1580. The permanent exhibition “Quality from Höchst and Baroque Ornamentation” tells the story of the old Höchster Porzellan Manufaktur from 1746 to the present day. A highlight of the museum is the Kurt Bechtold collection with its porcelain figures and tableware with delicate dark purple flower and bird paintings by renowned artists from Höchst.
