Welcome to the Museum of Communication Frankfurt
History, present and future of communication
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.
A visit to the museum is again possible without advance notification. Admission to the museum is currently only permitted with negative proof (vaccinated, recovered, tested).
According to the state hygiene concept and with limited numbers of people in the exhibitions, we contribute to a relaxed visit to the museum.
We, and especially the telephone sheep, look forward to seeing you!
