Impressive Museum with steadily and temporarly exhibitions. Good to know how important Jewish people were for Frankfruts prosperity in the middleage and that this was the foundation for prosperity for Frankfurt and Germany for many centuries. Good exhibition design, ancient house with a lot of background information. Greta place to be.Very recommendabla and a must-have when in Frankfurt. Nice walk... More

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.

Informative and reflective. A worthwhile experience. Visit with a guide on a walking tour, you will benefit from the additional insights and perspectives.

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

An interesting way to spend 90 minutes - longer if you read and speak German (not everything is English accessible). Exhibition is about Jewish culture and Frankfurt history.

The Jewish Museum in Frankfurt is housed in a beautiful building night near the Euro tower. I visited in June 2014 and was lucky enough that the Fritz Bauer - Der Staatsanwalt exhibition was on. The audio guides were very good and when you get to the part of the Frankfurt trials there is a place to sit and cry... More
