This media guide will help you get to know the Jewish Museum Frankfurt and its permanent exhibition “WE ARE NOW. Jewish Frankfurt from the Enlightenment to the Present,” now presented in an original location: the Rothschild family’s historic place of residence. Spread over three floors and approximately 15,000 square feet of exhibition space, the exhibition narrates the story of the Jews in Frankfurt from the Enlightenment and their emancipation around 1800 to the present day. This exhibition ties in with the permanent exhibition in the Museum Judengasse, which focuses on everyday Jewish life in Frankfurt in the early modern period.
Our media guide offers 90-minute and 60-minute tours in German and English. You can also access tours in sign language and simple language, as well as tours tailored for the visually impaired (only available in German).
