The history of the Georg-Speyer-Haus is documented in a small museum, which was designed by Klaus Görner M.A. in 1996. On display are laboratory equipment and goods of the institute’s history from the times of Paul Ehrlich, original laboratory notebooks and glass vessels with probes of Salvarsan.

The museum is not open to the public due to ongoing research at the Georg-Speyer-Haus. If you would like to visit the museum, please, contact Robert Dornberger.

The museum was equipped with the help of the Behringwerke AG, the Hoechst AG, the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute Langen, the Institute of Town History, the Museum of Craftwork, the Historical Museum of Frankfurt/Main, as well as the Department of Foundations (Legal Department of the City of Frankfurt/Main).
