The museums of the City of Frankfurt as well as the Institute of City History will unfortunately have to close again on Monday, March 29, after a guest appearance of just under 14 days. In order to do justice to the great public interest, the Jewish Museum Frankfurt has decided to extend the opening hours on the last three days of opening. A total of 2,500 people have visited the new Jewish Museum at Bertha-Pappenheim-Platz 1 in the twelve days since its reopening. Due to this high level of interest, the museum is extending its opening hours from Friday, March 26, to Sunday, March 28, in the evenings until 9 pm.
Other than that, it's business as usual: visitors are asked to reserve a time slot for their visit in advance at https://juedischesmuseum.ticketfritz.de/Home/Index. In addition to the new permanent exhibition "We Are Now: Jewish Frankfurt from the Enlightenment to the Present," the museum is also hosting its first temporary exhibition, "The Feminine Side of God." The public library and literature shop are also open in the light building by Staab Architekten.
Digital Museum Remains Open 24 Hours
The Jewish Museum has developed a digital strategy that has been successively implemented since 2016, culminating in the launch of the online collection at the end of last year. One focus of this strategy is the digital mediation of Jewish history and culture. This includes the app "Invisible Places," which guides visitors through Frankfurt's urban space, several online exhibitions, and audio and film tours of the Jewish Museum and Museum Judengasse exhibitions. In the wake of the Corona pandemic, the museum has developed additional digital offerings that are also aimed in particular at families with children. A post on the museum's blog "Gedibber" at http://juedischesmuseum.de/blog/digitale-angebote/ gives an overview of these offers.
