11 Things to Amaze You at the Frankfurt History Museum

With so many museums to choose from in Frankfurt, how does one prioritize?  Aaron wanted to visit the History Museum.  I was most drawn to the art of the Stadel or the cinema showcases of the Filmmuseum.  These are all discounted with a Frankfurt Card, so we figured we’d start with one and just go down the line; why not see them all?

Time wound up putting a stop to that idea, but we were fortunate to have started with what I think was the most interesting of them all – because it was the only one we actually had time to see.  It had so many fascinating exhibits to see, it’s no wonder we ended up spending an entire day there.
