Danish Jewish Museum, Copenhagen
(3.7/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Danish Jewish Museum preserves the memory of Danish Jews who were saved by the Danes from Nazi persecution in 1943. Discover documents and artifacts including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, films, and books that shed light on significant aspects of Jewish life in Denmark. World-famous architect Daniel Libeskind designed the museum almost like a labyrinth. Walk over its slanted floors and through its fractured passageways and winding corridors, which form the letters for the Hebrew word mitzvah, meaning "good deed." According to Libeskind, the interior provides a contextual frame for the exhibit.

  • For every Jew visiting Copenhagen, located in the heart of the city, the entry includes two contiguous access to the building. The first showing audiovisual and documents from as the community grew and was saved from the Holocaust. The second is below the national library, with other exhibitions.

  • An intimate museum showcasing the history of the Danish Jews. An interesting insight into the many facets of their culture, how they differ amongst themselves and their experiences in Denmark. The architecture is fascinating. Despite the small size of the museum, it is well worth the entrance fee and you can easily spend a couple of hours there (if you include the summer special exhibit). Staff are very polite and informative.
  • Bonito. Un buen rincón tranquilo
  • A winding jagged interior symbolizing the turbulent history of Jews in Europe.
  • Small but worth a visit. Very well detailed exhibition.
  • It's small - but if you're jewish, you should visit. If you're not, you should visit too. Very interesting - both the exhibition and the architecture (like a baby sister to the jewish museum in Berlin). The surrounding area is priceless.
