You can spend a whole day in here if you really go bit by bit through everything displayed and through the various rooms and building. Both the history of Frankfurt and the present parts are very interesting and show how much history Frankfurt has and...More

I took in this museum on a hot day in Frankfurt when the museum's air conditioning was a welcome respite. I'm a fan of historical places and information, so hoped this would provide a good review of Frankfurt's past. I know Frankfurt has a long...More

Had read about the old square (Romerberg) on tour web sites, but was a bit disappointed as a few contemporary buildings are mixed in with the old wood beam and stone structures. Fortunately, we also visited the Historical Museum right around the corner to get...More

While the museum can be a little confusing, it is really interesting and offers a lot of information and really nice exhibits including the development of photography, paintings, scientific instruments and toys (hence confusing...). A good option if you have already visited many of the...More

This museum provides an excellent overview of Frankfurt's history from the earliest times, including the history of the museum itself and it's current form. I particularly loved the snow dome which provided views of different aspects of Frankfurt in an entertaining way (although it does...More

This is a modern museum, where you can learn about Frankfurt since the medieval times to the contemporary period. You get a free audio guide in English. If you are interested to learn about the life of Frankfurt’s citizens from every historical period, I recommend...More

This museum opened October 7, in a new building designed specifically for these exhibits. The beginning features a snow globe of incredible interest - have to see it to experience the technology and Frankfurt history. Also the film showing the behind the scenes of the...More

We ventured there during a rainy day, part of the museum was closed but it was still worth the time, the exhibits were very interesting and we had a blast. The great part was the free entrance

This is a modern museum in the new museum quarter of Frankfurt. Nice design and layout. Nice facilities with a good cafe in the basement. Payment is required and if history is your subject this is worth a visit.

This museum is currently moving to a new building that is directly opposite the present one. My suggestion would be to visit after the move is complete, mid-October 2017, I believe. What we saw were largely small art collections formed by wealthy citizens in past...More
