I had to chance to visit this museum during the "Nacht Museen". It was really close to Mainkai and other museums. And in my point of view, it's definitely the best place to get to know the history of European Jews.

The museum presents a very interesting display of a gone world. Nearby is the old Jewish cemetery and the impressive holocaust memorial [incl. Anne Franck's stone].

A wonderful opportunity to see and know the Jewish history of Europe, especially Germany keeping aside all myths and prejudices we acquired from Hollywood brainwashing stories.

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...

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.
