The Museumsufer, which translates to Museum Riverbank, is the embankment along the banks of the Main River in Frankfurt which is home to 15 museums. Originally proposed in 1977, the concept of the museum area was developed in the 1980s with the expansion of existing museums and addition of new ones. The south bank of the river in Sachsenhausen between the Eiserner Steg and the Friedensbrücke has 10 museums – Ikonenmuseum, Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Museum der Weltkulturen, Deutsches Filmmuseum, Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Museum für Kommunikation, Städel, Liebieghaus, Museum Giersch, and Portikus. The north bank along Schaumainkai has the Jewish Museum, Historical Museum, Kunsthalle Schirn , Museum of Modern Art , and the Archaeological Museum.
