Set in an old church, and next to (but separate from ticket wise) a similar museum, this place doesn't have much to shout about. A large exhibit hall and some smaller display cases dotted about does not make this a very exiting way to spend...More

It is in German, so it is a bit of a let down, but still a great museum. Love the lego models of ancient Frankfurt. Lots of nice artifacts as well.

I would have rated it 3.5 if given that option. If it had more exhibits it would definitely be a 4. The museum is walking distance from the Willy-Brandt subway stop. It gives a small but nice overview of Neolithic life in Frankfurt. The Roman...More

The exhibition is rather small, but still interesting. There are some neolithic artefacts and then of course some celtic, germanic and roman ones. Plus there is a small collection of ancient greek and roman ceramics. And a small museum shop with some really interesting items...More

The museum is well organized and the audio guide is very helpful. Some pieces come from the Tigris/Euphrates, others are Etruscan and Roman. The exhibits depict the Stone Age, Bronze and Iron Age, as well as Roman settlements in the Frankfurt area.

The building is a beautifully restored Carmelite monastery, and it has a very good collection of artifacts (Roman, near eastern, Iron age German etc). All the guides available were in German. All the exhibit descriptions were only in German. We speak German, so we spent...More

The archaeological museum provides wonderful insight into humans from prehistory through medieval times. Everything was fascinating, but my son and I particularly enjoyed the large number of Roman artifacts -- weapons, coins, eating utensils, and building fragments. Written descriptions on the exhibits are in German,...More

Frankfurt's archeological museum is situated in the strict city centre, close to the Main river, so it's easily accesible and very worth your time. It traces the history of the Frankfurt region from the very pre-historic beginnings to Medieval times. There are a lot of...More

The museum exhibits are in the former (rebuilt) Carmelite church and a modern building to its side. The labelling is all in German, but if you have a reasonable knowledge of northern European archaeology you'll recognise a really good display of artefacts from the Bronze...More
