Very interesting museum that does not obsess on Hitler and the Third Reich as do so many others.It had a very easy floor plan that allowed you to follow the birth of the Jewish relion in stages through the centuries. Well worth a visit but allow quite a few hours if possible.

Not so easy to find it. It is a large museum, which reflects the history of Frankfurt and the long traditions of the Jewish community. There are some 12.000 jews from the city who were deported during the Nazi regime, and this is a remembering place for them also. You can learn a lot here.

To the best of my knowledge, this is one of the biggest Jewish museums in the world and houses some of the rarest items in the category. The place was very big and you can easily spend half a day there. The good thing is that it was really quite for a museum of this scale and not many people... More

Frankfurt has an enormous wealth of Jewish history, our association with the Rothschild and Bethmann families has left a rich legacy. So too the not so palatable Holocaust memories, yet Frankfurt is not shy at working hard to provide fitting tributes and memorials to the near 12,000 jews who were ´deported´from the city during the war years - never to...

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.
