We want young people to conceive of museums as open houses, in which they are welcome anytime," says Dr. Ina Hartwig, Frankfurt's Deputy Mayor in charge of Culture.

How much does a suit of armour weigh? What does a garden chair have in common with a space rocket? Where can you find miniature houses? How did Stone Age people make fire? The answers to these and many more exciting, curious, and interesting facts can be found in the museums on both banks of the river Main.
