Study Area

In addition to the three exhibition levels, other spaces are available to our visitors where they can expand their knowledge. The Study Area on the first exhibition level is one of these.

The Study Area is a space equipped with variable showcases that make it possible to stage small, specialist exhibitons, thus making an additional contribution to the discourse on current issues related to Jewish cultural history. Items from our continuously growing collection can also be displayed here in detail on an intimate scale.

Max Frankenburger (1860—1943)
Bicycle pioneer and independent scholar

An Exhibition in the Study Area at the Jewish Museum Munich

Max Frankenburger, son of a teacher of Jewish religious studies from Middle Franconia and an enthusiastic cyclist, co-founded the “Victoria Fahrradwerke” in Nuremberg in 1888, which grew into one of the largest bicycle factories of its kind in Germany. After its transformation into a stock corporation around 1900, Frankenburger withdrew from the operative business and moved to Munich to devote his attention to his second passion—researching goldsmithery. In addition to numerous other publications, his book “Die Alt-Münchner Goldschmiede und ihre Kunst” (Old Munich Goldsmiths and their Art), published in 1909, is still considered an important standard work to this day. Little is known now of the life and death of its author who was murdered in Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1943.
