Excellent museum, and only €6 to get in, the history is very interesting, both how they found the ruins and how this lived in the Jewish quarter in the past. They do a really good job of bringing the history alive. all of the signs are in English with the exception of the intro video as they have removed the translation headphones due to Covid. I’d really recommend asking to visit the Jesus cemetery next door, when your finished at the museum ask for the key, you have to leave a form of ID as a deposit.

Beautifully curated historical site with interesting media installations. The graveyard next door is also worth a visit.

Good place to go to learn about Jewish history prior to world wars. Most information was provided in English as well as German.

About the Museum

In 1987 the city of Frankfurt began constructing a building for the public utilities company. The workers discovered the foundations of houses from the city’s former Jewish quarter, the Judengasse. After considerable protest parts of the archeological excavations were reconstructed and made accessible to the public in a museum. The museum has now been redesigned. Its entrance was moved to Battonnstrasse so that the museum, the old Jewish cemetery, and the memorial to the deported Jews of Frankfurt are now visible as a historical ensemble.

The exhibition opens up new perspectives. Rather than portraying the Judengasse residents as members of a group isolated behind ghetto walls, it examines their diverse relations with Frankfurt’s Christian residents, the city council and the emperor. The valuable artifacts, the literature and the music presented by the museum reveal a common cultural space characterized by intense exchanges.

The Museum Judengasse has a barrier-free access and provides to visually impaired an own audio guide to the exhibition. A series of playful interactive stations and a special catalog invite children to undertake their own explorations of the exhibition. There are guided tours for families and you can have birthday parties and other celebrations for children and young people at the museum. School classes can also book workshops at our Pedagogical Center.
