there are 2 jewish museums
Yes, but as discussed
neither of them are worth the shlep in a 4 hr stop
Makes sense, I guess by the time you get there you'd already have to return..

I didn't make a 7 hour stop to drive the autobahn. It ended up that way. I would also like to go to some kevarim so if I can drive with no speed limit that would be more fun than the train (or whatever)

Don't be so sure, I for one didn't get any Minyan on that route.  In fact there were not that many frum people flying...
Though there is a daily minyan in the Shtieble (together with maariv), reachable via subway.

Had no idea where to get the key so I jumped the fence. Pretty short and easy to climb. Sometimes you have no choice.
But first try to be a mentch.

Make sure to go during business hours of the museum, otherwise you're possibly wasting your time going there (you learn from (my!) mistakes).
last time i stopped in frankfurt there were a bunch of jews. but of course YPMV so i want to be sure. flight is leaving 725pm so will not make a mincha/maariv minyan
Oy vey!  Lucky you no one called the polizei!
