  • This museum is much different than some of the other areas museums which are in modern square buildings and are packed with artifacts. It is located in and around what used to be a monastery, and has small but excellent exhibits ranging from prehistoric times to the middle ages. You will see Greek pottery, Roman armor, artifacts from the near east, and plenty of interesting items dug up in and around Frankfurt. Currently there is a special exhibit on medieval metallurgy as well. Don't miss the monastery garden/courtyard, around which there are huge fresco/murals depicting Christianic scenes. This museum will take you about 45 min to an hour to go through. There isn't much in the way of interactive opportunities for kids except for a small Roman game. Like other reviews have said, everything is in German, but they offer an English audio guide for 2 Euro. They only have about 10, so if you're taking a large group, some folks will go without. By the way, the bathroom is downstairs after going into the Greek section.
  • Interesting museum. The only one cons. for me is that all description in German. It is hard to understand what is talking about. Will to recommend to visit with German speaking friends or guide.
