We are happy to be there for you again! Special times require special measures. To ensure that you and our staff are safe from infection, we have taken the following preventive measures:

A visit to the museum is only possible with a mouth-nose mask. If you do not have one, you can buy a washable mask at our ticket offices.
Until further notice, the special exhibition Clothes in Motion is open to the public. A fashionable city laboratory is open as well as the permanent exhibitions Frankfurt Once?, Frankfurt Now! and the Snow Globe. The exhibitions in the historic old buildings are unfortunately closed until now. The recommended minimum distance of 1.5 m between visitors cannot be guaranteed there.
The exhibition "Werk *Stoff *Textil" in the Young Museum Frankfurt is open in the old building (level 2).

Under normal circumstances, we would be glad to have direct contact among visitors. During the times of Covid-19 we unfortunately have to avoid this. For this reason, all exhibitions and staircases have a route guidance system that works via markings on the floor. Lifts may only be used by one person or by groups living in the same household.

In all exhibitions some media stations are set up in such a way that they do not have to be operated by touch. There are other stations that only work by touch, these are regularly disinfected by our guards and public attendants. Even some of the interactive stations of the children's trail are usable.

You can borrow our multimedia devices. They will be cleaned regularly. However, you can also use our highlight tour on your smartphone. Public attendants are there to answer your questions on each floor.

Even our museum cafés are open again (between noon and 5 p.m.).
We wish you a pleasant visit in our museum!
