If you are interested in history, you should visit this Museum. It Shows the importance of the Jewish community for the development of Frankfurt in all its dimensions. Unfortunately the Museum will be closed in the next months. Try to arrange a visit to the Museum Judengasse or to the Museum at the site of the old synagogue in the... More

Check the calendar as sometimes there are great events, such as the Sunday Morning Jazz. I highly recommend getting into these events. The museum is lovely and as my title says, is a great insight to the local Jewish Community. It is also perfectly located to stroll along the riverside.

Although there are not many museum exhibits, I learned a lot about the Jewish history in the region. Lots of reading, may be boring for people used to all those colorful modern multimedia museums (but not for me!).

There is not a separate listing for the Holocaust Memorial so I am including it here as a relevant fact related to the Museum. This memorial is outside the Old Jewish Cemetery down Battonnstrasse from the Museum Judengasse. Both are a short walk east of Romerberg and St. Bartholomew's Cathedral. The site of the memorial is where the Borneplatz Synagogue... More

Not really worth the visit. No air-conditioning. Hardly any visitors. Very few exhibits. Café across the street has good food and views of the river.

At 7 Euros a pop, I was expecting a rather elaborate museum with lots of history. Instead I got 2 floors of temple paraphernalia and some drawings. There was even an animation of the movie Ten Commandments! Most everything was written in German. There were just 3 other visitors, all Americans. At the very least, this museum should be free.

Small band put on a great show. They involved the audience by giving them drums and other instruments to play along with him. Low cost wine and cakes etc.

Most of the placards had English translations but a lot of the artifacts did not. It was not a very dynamic exhibit; I felt like I was reading textbook pages that had been blown up and displayed on the wall. The displays were okay; but most of it was in German. I found the section with the holidays and traditions... More
