This year the Children’s Museum Frankfurt, at the age of 46, has grown up to become the Young Museum Frankfurt.
In the heart of the historic old city, the Young Museum has moved back to the original space as part of the Historical Museum Frankfurt, after 10 years of renovation an rebuilding.
The children's museum originally opened in 1972 and remains the oldest children’s museum in Germany. It was founded with the goal of creating a culture venue for the museum visitors of tomorrow, and defined as an integral part of the “adults” museum”.
Today the Frankfurt Young Museum is visible by it‘s own entrance area and staircase, and could be referred to as „house within a house”. Its three floors of space are a prominent and lively feature of the new museum complex, offering ten creative workshops and three historic theme playrooms for role-playing. All visitors are welcome to participate, as well families with children, school classes and groups. Our newly designed rooms are open to curious visitors, and our new name: Junges Museum (Young Museum) is designed to be more attractive to our main target group, children between the ages of 6 and 14.
