Somewhat tucked away is this very nice museum that has a little bit for any enthusiast lover of history. We visited during the wine and gold exhibit... very interesting. The only challenge for most foreign visitors is that the majority of placards are only in...More

This special exhibition, running until early Feb 2019, is a fantastic surprise. It features archaeological finds from digs in Georgia, including a funeral chariot from a burial mound. There is less gold and wine than the title of the exhibit might lead you to expect,...More

This museum has an excellent collection of artifacts and also some models. Unfortunately for those of us who do not read German, very little of the signage is in English. There is a small handout in English. Still, the collection is worth viewing. Gift shop...More

Set in an old church, and next to (but separate from ticket wise) a similar museum, this place doesn't have much to shout about. A large exhibit hall and some smaller display cases dotted about does not make this a very exiting way to spend...More

It is in German, so it is a bit of a let down, but still a great museum. Love the lego models of ancient Frankfurt. Lots of nice artifacts as well.

I would have rated it 3.5 if given that option. If it had more exhibits it would definitely be a 4. The museum is walking distance from the Willy-Brandt subway stop. It gives a small but nice overview of Neolithic life in Frankfurt. The Roman...More

The exhibition is rather small, but still interesting. There are some neolithic artefacts and then of course some celtic, germanic and roman ones. Plus there is a small collection of ancient greek and roman ceramics. And a small museum shop with some really interesting items...More

The museum is well organized and the audio guide is very helpful. Some pieces come from the Tigris/Euphrates, others are Etruscan and Roman. The exhibits depict the Stone Age, Bronze and Iron Age, as well as Roman settlements in the Frankfurt area.
