Free admission to muncipal museums under 18


The manifold museums of Frankfurt are worthwhile destinations all year round. For children and young adults under the age of 18.

16 Museums – 0 Euros for Everyone Under 18

Budding Edisons or little whirlwinds, introverts or extroverts, quiet contemplators or persistent questioners – if they're under 18 years of age they can visit all of Frankfurt's 16 municipal museums for free.

Free admission for children and young adults under 18 was decided by the city council in January 2017, and applies to all permanent and special exhibitions. The offer has been well received, and the statistics indicate a 25% increase in museum attendance by under 18s in the first quarter of 2017 alone. The following fascinating institutions are open to everyone in that age group free of charge:
Archäologisches Museum
Caricatura Museum
Deutsches Architekturmuseum
Hindemith Kabinett
Historisches Museum
Institut für Stadtgeschichte
Jüdisches Museum
Junges Museum
Museum Angewandte Kunst
Museum Judengasse
Porzellan Museum
Weltkulturen Museum

Also, the free admission for everyone under the age of 18 applies at the MUSEUM GIERSCH of the Goethe-University.

We want young people to conceive of museums as open houses, in which they are welcome anytime," says Dr. Ina Hartwig, Frankfurt's Deputy Mayor in charge of Culture.

How much does a suit of armour weigh? What does a garden chair have in common with a space rocket? Where can you find miniature houses? How did Stone Age people make fire? The answers to these and many more exciting, curious, and interesting facts can be found in the museums on both banks of the river Main.
