Welcome to the Museum of Communication Frankfurt

History, present and future of communication

About us

In the multiple award-winning museum building on Schaumainkai, you will gain a comprehensive insight into the history of communication. Special features include the Art and Communication department and the lively offerings of the Children’s Workshop.

In the permanent exhibition “Mediengeschichte|n neu erzählt!” you can experience the development of communication on 2,500 square meters. With the help of groundbreaking inventions, curious experiences and unusual fates, we span the arc from the cuneiform tablet to the data glasses.

On the second floor, in addition to the hands-on area of the children’s workshop, there is the Forum – an exhibition space for smaller temporary exhibitions. On the 2nd floor, large temporary exhibitions are presented on an area of 550 square meters. The museum roof houses a radio station that can be visited several times a week.

Your visit

You can visit the Museum für Kommunikation Frankfurt without proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test. The mask requirement does not apply. We would like to contribute to a relaxed visit to the museum and therefore continue to recommend wearing a mask indoors.

We, and especially the telephone sheep, look forward to seeing you!

The Museum Foundation Post and Telecommunications

The Museums of Communication with their collections belong to the Museum Foundation Post and Telecommunications, which was founded in 1995 in the course of the German postal reform. The historical roots of the foundation go back to the 19th century, to the founding of our collections and the Reichspostmuseum in Berlin.

Our foundation is dedicated to the topics of communication and media. In three museums at the Berlin, Frankfurt and Nuremberg locations and with our collections, we activate our audience through a broad programme of education and encourage dialogue about the past, present and future of communication. The Foundation collects, preserves and researches at three collection sites, in Berlin-Tempelhof, in Heusenstamm near Frankfurt and in Bonn at the Archiv für Philatelie. With more than 11 million objects, we maintain one of the world’s largest and oldest collections on the history of communication and media.
