The best museums in Frankfurt

When you stop in any city in Europe, chances are you won't have to look far to find a museum that you find interesting. This is especially true in the German city of Frankfurt, which, aside from being the financial center of the country, has gained notoriety due to its wide variety of museums. While it may be impossible to hit all of them in a single tour of Germany, there are several that you should be sure not to miss.

The Stadel
One of the most famous art museums in the country, The Stadel is home to a large collection of impressive artwork. The breathtaking building is located on the banks of the Main River and houses pieces covering some of the most important periods in art history.

It doesn't take an art history buff to appreciate these works, including paintings from Renaissance icons such as Fra Angelico and Sandro Botticelli as well as more contemporary names  like Degas and Picasso. 

Naturmuseum Senckenberg
The second largest natural history museum in Germany, the Senckenberg is among the most family-friendly destinations in Frankfurt. The compelling museum is home to a wide variety of exhibits that are sure to pique the curiosity of even the youngest visitors.

It's easy to spend a day exploring every inch of the facility, but the museum's highlight is arguably its extensive collection of dinosaur fossils including that of the T-Rex, triceratops and iguanodon, just to name a few.

Deutsches Filmmuseum
With a name that translates to the German Film Museum, it can be easy to assume that this attraction is dedicated solely to the history of movie making in Germany, but that isn't the case. There are exhibits focusing on the film culture of the entire world as well as the history of  motion pictures.

The museum is also a great place to go for those looking to catch a glimpse of the movie making process. In some instances, there are even screenings open to the public.
