The 1970s extension is currently being replaced by a modern new exhibition building and a small administration building which are expected to be completed by 2015.[1]


The museum's collection is displayed in several permanent chronological exhibitions: Mediaeval Frankfurt, the Late Middle Ages, the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries, the nineteenth-century city, and its history as a metropolis from 1866 to 2001. Special exhibitions are also on display.
