The Architecture of the New Jewish Museum Frankfurt

In 2015, Frankfurt City Council resolved to thoroughly modernize the city’s Jewish Museum. The resolution was broad in scope, encompassing the restoration of the historical Rothschild Palais and the construction of a new extension to it, the redesign of the Museum Judengasse, and the realization of two new permanent exhibitions. In winter that same year, work began on the new Jewish Museum, which will open on October 21, 2020.
