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.

Impressive Museum with steadily and temporarly exhibitions. Good to know how important Jewish people were for Frankfruts prosperity in the middleage and that this was the foundation for prosperity for Frankfurt and Germany for many centuries. Good exhibition design, ancient house with a lot of background information. Greta place to be.Very recommendabla and a must-have when in Frankfurt. Nice walk to the river bank right across the street, easy to get there and having nice restaurants all around. Look yourself.

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 once stood which was destroyed with many others on November 9, 1938. The footprint of the synagogue is marked on the ground for all to see.

Around the cemetery is the Wall of Names, with a tiny marker fixed into the wall for each Frankfurt Jew deported and murdered by the Nazis. The destination of the individual and date of death are noted, if known.

The markers represent the dignity of a tombstone and of being named. The Museum keeps their memory alive with records of what is know about each person.

This memorial reinforces the horrors of which we are all aware, but it is worth an hour or two to pay respect to the 12,000 innocent lives that were taken.

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.
