Takeover: The Museum Quarter is finished!

Historisches Museum celebrates opening of new entrance building and completion of the building

(kus) After ten years of planning and six years of construction, the time has come: the museum quarter of the new Historisches Museum Frankfurt is ready. From Wednesday, May 17, to Sunday, May 21, the museum will celebrate this milestone - together with the commissioning of the new entrance building. All citizens are invited to enter the new rooms for the first time and get to know the shapes and colours of the new City Museum.

The celebrations will be kicked off on 17 May when Lord Mayor Peter Feldmann will hand over the building to Head of Cultural Affairs Ina Hartwig by Head of Building Jan Schneider. Museum director Jan Gerchow will report on the process of reorientation and the museum building, and all those involved in the construction will celebrate the successful completion of the building project.

On Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, citizens are invited to the Takeover and can conquer the still empty rooms for themselves. They can expect a special festive programme consisting of special tours, music and theatre performances. Together with the culinary offerings of the new museum caterer, the Museum Quarter can be experienced for the first time as a cultural experience. The new exhibition space can be visited via the building in the centre. The building between Stauferhafen and Museumsplatz has many windows and offers a view of the old Saalhof building to the south and of the exhibition building behind Museumsplatz towards Römerberg. Admission to the Museum Quarter is free.

With the conversion, the new City Museum is now accessible without barriers, thus completing another important step on the way to becoming an inclusive museum, following the new website in January. The museum portal at <link http: _blank>

has been set up according to VGA 2.0 guidelines for people with visual impairments and intellectual disabilities.

After the first milestone on 20 and 21. May, the completion of the Historisches Museum Frankfurt is proceeding rapidly: the opening of the new exhibition house with the new permanent exhibitions "Frankfurt Once?" and "Frankfurt Now!" planned
