The Archaeological Museum is dedicated to researching, presenting and informing about the prehistoric, roman, mediaeval and more recent archaeology of Frankfurt and its surrounding countryside. It preserves and displays discoveries of importance for the region and the city, from extensive excavations. These include, among others, the wide-ranging excavations - in the roman town of NIDA-Heddernheim, in Frankfurt's old town, and in the former Jewish ghetto at Börneplatz. These are added to each year by new excavations carried out by the Historic Monuments Department.
