The idea of establishing a children's museum took shape in 1971 during the renewal of the Frankfurt Historical Museum and its approach "Arts for All". Its goal was to bring the museum visitors of tomorrow closer to the museum at an early age. Just weeks after the reopening of the Historical Museum, the Children's Museum opened its doors on November 7, 1972. Since then, the Children's Museum has been a successful, integral part of the cultural youth scene in Frankfurt. The Children's Museum is a meeting point for children and families the whole year round. In addition to its changing exhibits the printing workshop, arts and crafts courses, birthday parties, and diverse other activities are firmly anchored in the annual program of the Children's Museum. We look forward to your visit to the Children's Museum! We are located virtually (and really!) at the center of Frankfurt's inner city.

The Children's museum is a member of the non-profit Federal Association of German Youth and Children's Museums (Bundesverband der Deutschen Kinder- und Jugendmuseen e.V.)
