This museum has an excellent collection of artifacts and also some models. Unfortunately for those of us who do not read German, very little of the signage is in English. There is a small handout in English. Still, the collection is worth viewing. Gift shop...More

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.

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
