Museum Magazine – "Schneekugel"

The new public magazine of the Historical Museum offers special insights and perspectives into the past and the future. Twice a year, it will now present topics that deal with our city and the Frankfurt Historical Museum.

On 48 pages, it provides insights into the activities and offerings of Frankfurt's large city museum. It is named after the large snow globe ("Schneekugel") in the new building with its eight unusual city models of Frankfurt's special features. The magazine is aimed at anyone interested in the city of Frankfurt and its rich history and current issues.
