The guiding principle of the museum

The Historical Museum Frankfurt is the city’s oldest museum, collecting and preserving, researching, conveying and exhibiting Frankfurt's cultural heritage. As a city museum it is a centre of knowledge and critical information, reflection and discussion on the past, present and future of Frankfurt; as a history museum it links local town issues with broader social history.
The museum is open to everyone. Its Young Museum offers opportunities tailored specifically to families and schools. The museum draws upon the wealth of experience and knowledge from Frankfurt’s people and their guests, working in a participatory and inclusive manner. It invites everyone living in the city to participate in the museum as a cultural forum and help shape it. Multiple perspectives and diversity play a central role in this context. The diversity of urban society is reflected in its collections, exhibitions and communication.
Based on current topics of debates, historical objects are scientifically researched and linked to subjective stories and points of view; this includes all relevant artistic, city-researching as well as everyday-life perspectives. Additional museum objectives include expanding and consolidating its digital strategy and its networks within the city and the region.

The museum preserves the cultural heritage of its urban community for future generations. It features extensive collections of art and the history of everyday life, with outstanding inventories at its disposal. The museum team carefully preserves the objects and manages their conservation. Important priorities include the digital documentation and publication of collections, and the researching of provenances.
Our museum team fosters a cooperative and respectful working environment. Together with the colleagues of the Young Museum and the Porcelain Museum, we form a team comprised of diverse expert skills that complement each other and allow for differing views. The museum team is active in international museum networks. We are an open-minded and learning institution: we are curious, work on an interdisciplinary basis, and confront the challenges of a constantly changing urban society.

 

The Junges Museum Frankfurt  (Young Museum) shows interactive exhibitions created especially for young people aged 6 to 14. The Porzellan Museum in the Kronberger Haus in Höchst has been presenting around 1,800 Höchst faiences and porcelain since 1994, mainly from the Rococo and Neoclassical periods.

The museum sees itself as a forum for topics of the urban society and contributes to the understanding of the present and future of the city. With its participatory orientation, the Historical Museum takes the wealth of experience and knowledge of its visitors seriously and gives them space in the museum.

You can get involved in one of the museum's many departments, either as participation in a projector or in the form of a permanent assignment. In the museum store, for example, you will advise visitors and engage in conversation with them. In visitor and event services, you will also be in direct contact with the museum's guests. In the press and marketing department, the fields of application range from database maintenance to website support. In the image archive or in the museum's many collections, tasks such as documentation, archiving or research await you. Last but not least, volunteer support is also possible in fundraising.
