39 museums, endless discoveries!
The ensemble of buildings of nationally and internationally important museums and art galleries that forms the Museumsufer or Museum Riverbank, is something that is unique in Europe. It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for contemporary art or Old Masters, Goethe or his literary heirs, cultures of the world or the world of money, caricatures or sculptures, design or local history: 39 museums and exhibition venues offer a wide and unique variety of much that is quaint and spectacular, loud and quiet, ranging from small and precious finds to broad overviews.
Frankfurt’s museum scene is one of the largest and most varied in Germany. When Frankfurt was still a free imperial city and therefore possessed no royal collections, it was the responsibility of committed citizens and the city council alone to start a collection, make endowments and found a museum. Today, Frankfurt has many larger and smaller museums and exhibition halls of different sizes, from general art museums to small specialist collections. Twenty-six museums conveniently located in close proximity to each other and within walking-distance of the city centre form the heart of Frankfurt’s museum scene. You can find a representation of the museums on our city map.
The museums on the south bank are located along the Schaumainkai.
