Jewish Museum Berlin is one of Europe's largest venues dedicated to Jewish history. A sobering exhibit dedicated to the reign of the Third Reich presents Germany through the eyes of the Jewish minority. Important events in Jewish history are portrayed via fine art, manuscripts, photographs, and family memorabilia. Two millennia of German-Jewish history are on display in the permanent exhibit space, as well as in several changing presentation areas. All of this is spread over two buildings, one of which is designed by architect Daniel Libeskind. The staff can accompany you through the exhibits. Or you can use an audio guide and explore this comprehensive history museum at your own pace.

  • read some posts about this museum. It did not seem to be the same place-maybe it wasn't. This is a small museum about how 1 person saw the holocaust. It was disappointing and not worth the time it...

  • Too much Anne, too little frank.
  • By far one of the best museum I've ever visited. Every room you enter brings more enlightenment of how Jewish people have suffered in the past. Alongside this it also shows how they've overcome adversity, stay strong, keep their faith and is educational in the sense of Jewish culture. The museum itself is also a joy, you have to see it to truly understand it. Highly recommend visiting and set aside a whole day as it will take the whole day to take everything in.
  • I went to this museum in the morning so it wasn't too crowded it was very beautiful so many different ways of showing Jewish culture and history and it was completely free the only thing you had to do was book a slot. It was very educational and I would recommend it to anyone.
  • A must-see for Berlin. You need a few hours here, so be prepared to take your time as you walk through and learn. There’s a balance of history before and after WWII, so it’s not just about oppression.
  • This museum deals with the full history of the Jews in Germany culminating in the horror of the Holocaust/Shoah. It takes a very different approach compared to most linear histories. There are areas to reflect upon what has been presented to you and areas where all is "in your face". As meaningful as the Memorial to the Murdered and really worth a visit.
