The historisches museum on the Römerberg is Frankfurt’s municipal museum. The unique historic architectural ensemble welcomes visitors with topical permanent and special exhibitions as well as a wide range of events and activities to accompany children and adults in exploring the city of Frankfurt and its history. Now that the renovation measures have been completed, the rediscovery of the historic Saalhofensemble is a particularly worthwhile undertaking. From 2008 to 2012, the historisches museum’s old buildings were refurbished according to plans by the prestigious Diezinger Architekten firm of Eichstätt. 


With the opening of the new building on the Römerberg, scheduled for 2015, the museum’s alteration measures will come to a close and the historisches museum will present itself as a modern municipal museum of the twenty-first century with completely new exhibitions on Frankfurt’s variegated history.
