Museums of History

Considering all the events of a political, economic and cultural import that have taken place in this city since it was first officially documented in 794, Frankfurt has always been a place of extraordinary significance for both German and European history. Together with other institutions, the Historisches Museum Frankfurt (Frankfurt Museum of History), founded in 1878, is keeping Frankfurt’s fascinating history alive today. Temporary exhibitions of history museums such as the Institut für Stadtgeschichte (Institute of Local History) or the Jüdisches Museum (Jewish Museum) also focus on a wider historical context.
