We were looking forward to a Museum of German history. The building itself (still under construction) was intriguing. However, we were met with a very surely staff member upon arrival and found it lacked in, well, history. The receptionist didn't appear to like her job,...More

The building is also historical. 1-2 minutes walking to romer place. It has %50 discounted entrance fee with city card. Most of the collections of museum is dominated by princes and citizens. The museum has four floors.

We hadn't planned to visit but the pouring rain and sideways blowing winds encouraged us to find a spot to hide in for a while. Located just by the Romer, this was a perfect spot and at just 7 EUR each it wasn't too expensive....More

This is more of a collections of items from former Frankfurt aristocrats as opposed to a museum of the city's history. It's a nice collection, but not what we were expecting.

Explores the modern history of Frankfurt. Lots of great paintings, armour, and other things from history. Also a section on the war. Building was pretty cool as well, and wasn't too crowded either.
