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 were inside when I visited.

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 return.

The Jewish museum beautifully celebrates a culture of which I previously had little knowledge- the richness of the religion and the nobility of orthodoxy are so well displayed in this charming riverside villa. The building itself is a delight- with a great period interior that is sensitively restored. The diversity of the display is breathtaking and some of the artefacts shown just awesome. Also there is a tender and sensitive simplicity in the way some of the worlds saddest history is curated. On the occasion I visited there was an elegant and humble display of the toy bricks that Anne Frank played with as a young girl. The Frank family bequest is something that will add so much depth and weight to this museum though it is not fully realised yet.

Whatevr your beliefs or faith this museum is an important visit if your in the city. Its very centrally located just a ten minute walk from Alte Oper our Römer and has great facilities. Its set at the southern end of a park and sits on the river bank, you may like to spend a few moments of reflection following your trip. I was deeply moved by my first visit and plan to return as exhibitions change.

If you are interested in history, you should visit this Museum. It Shows the importance of the Jewish community for the development of Frankfurt in all its dimensions. 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 Ostend instead.

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.
