I had to chance to visit this museum during the "Nacht Museen". It was really close to Mainkai and other museums. And in my point of view, it's definitely the best place to get to know the history of European Jews.

The museum presents a very interesting display of a gone world.
Nearby is the old Jewish cemetery and the impressive holocaust memorial [incl. Anne Franck's stone].

A wonderful opportunity to see and know the Jewish history of Europe, especially Germany keeping aside all myths and prejudices we acquired from Hollywood brainwashing stories.

Very interesting museum that does not obsess on Hitler and the Third Reich as do so many others.It had a very easy floor plan that allowed you to follow the birth of the Jewish relion in stages through the centuries. Well worth a visit but allow quite a few hours if possible.

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.
