Guided tours through the museum
Outside the opening hours of the Transport Museum (Mondays to Saturdays), you can book guided tours for groups of 10 or more, school classes or kindergarten groups. These tours include:
- An expert tour of the exhibition and the outside grounds. You will not only gain fascinating insights into the 150-year history of Frankfurt’s public transport system, but also into the functioning and operating technology of the historic buses and trains.
- Age-appropriate tours are tailored to your group, so whether young or old, there is something exciting for everyone.
- The opportunity to visit our museum store after the tour and buy interesting souvenirs.
Children’s birthday parties at the Museum of Transport (Can not be offered at the moment!)
Especially for our younger guests, a birthday party at the Museum of Transport is a popular highlight. In addition to a child-friendly guided tour of the exhibition, there is plenty of time for cake breaks or to unwrap presents. With as many interactive exhibits as possible, such as our children’s driving school, the model train or the opportunity to set a switch yourself, the day becomes an unforgettable experience.
- We recommend children’s birthday parties for groups between 6 and 14 years of age.
- We are happy to cater to your individual wishes.
- Unfortunately, the museum cannot provide catering, but you can bring your own food and drinks and enjoy them at the museum.
- The birthday child and the party guests will receive a small souvenir from us.
Please note that group tours as well as children’s birthday parties must be booked at least one month in advance so that a suitable date can be found on the part of our volunteer staff.
Furthermore, we recommend that school classes and kindergarten groups have at least two chaperones so that the groups can be divided up for the tour if necessary.
Prices for guided tours will be arranged individually for you on request.
We recommend that you travel by public transport or bicycle.
