The Young Museum (Junges Museum) is a place in Frankfurt where children and young people can engage with culture in all its many facets. It was founded in 1972 as the Kindermuseum Frankfurt, a branch of the Historisches Museum Frankfurt. As a „museum within a museum” it turns a visit to the Historisches Museum into an exciting adventure for the whole family. Its changing programme of interactive exhibitions is aimed explicitly at children and young people and explores themes of relevance to their interests and their world. Besides welcoming youngsters to the museum, the YMF also has a outreach program which takes the museum to the kids. The Young Museum also designed special family tours through the permanent exhibitions of the Historisches Museum. Included in these tours are more than thirty hands-on, interactive stations as well as study rooms with additional learning opportunities.
