Archaeological Museum Frankfurt

The former Carmelite Church was expanded in 1989 by architect Josef Paul Kleihues and has since housed the Frankfurt Archäologisches Museum. The Archaeological Museum shows the prehistory and early history of the Frankfurt region and presents the most important finds from Frankfurt excavation sites. The combination of the medieval church and modern expansion, with a view of the cloister, creates large, bright spaces. The permanent exhibition shows finds from the region from the Stone Age to the Early Middle Ages.
