Archaeological Museum Frankfurt

The old Carmelite Monastery of Frankfurt hosts the Archaeological Museum as well as the Institute for City History.

The archaeological museum mainly houses findings of the former Roman city of Nida (today the Heddernheim district in Frankfurt) and exhibits from the early middle ages.

The main reason for the visit to this museum was a special exhibition called Burgen und Basare der Kreuzfahrerzeit (Castles and Bazaars in the Age of the Crusades). The center of the exhibition were two big models of the fortress Crac des Chevaliers and the bazaar of Aleppo.
