The Historische Museum on the Römerberg is Frankfurt’s oldest museum and exhibits Frankfurt’s cultural heritage. The unique historic architectural ensemble welcomes visitors with permanent and special exhibitions as well as a wide range of events and activities to accompany children and adults in exploring the city of Frankfurt and its history.

 

With the Saalhof ensemble, the museum tells the city’s history in a unique way. It consists of five buildings from eight centuries. These five monuments of the museum were restored thoroughly from 2008 to 2012 according to plans by the prestigious Diezinger Architekten firm of Eichstätt.

 

In 2017, after the largest renovation since 1972, the new-build opened its doors for the permanent exhibitions. The new-build adds an entrance building, a large exhibition house and a museum forecourt to the museum ensemble. The forecourt can be visited free of charge and gives visitors an impressive view of the Wertheim (House).
