#6 of 191 in Museums in Berlin
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.

  • The Jewish museum wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it was a good surprise in some ways. Firstly the architectural structure of the building was very interesting, modern and smart! And there...  more »
  • We expected to get more Information on Holocaust or Jewish tradition. Focus of the museum was more on architecture and art of Jewish people. Simply nothing we were that much interested in. You...  more »
  • I have heard good things about this museum, however I suggest visit after main exhibitions reopen in April 2020, there is very little to see now. We were surprised they are still charging full entry!  more »

  • Very well-planned exhibition and interiors, I read through each of the stories and I agree from these fragments I feel more to the victims although it is no doubt not even closer to the pains they had suffered. The garden is bright and quiet while there are still police stations around the museum itself which reminds me the conflicts are still alive and just around the corner.
  • A place filled with emotion. Some exhibitions fill the smaller hallways and rooms of the building. A pretty garden located right next to it and a nice cafe inside. Though, the real attractions are the axis and towers. Empty, quiet yet loud, filled with shadows...truly worth a visit.
  • The installations and architecture provide a harrowing and touching experience. Unfortunately the upper floors were closed when we visited. Will definitely come back for the full experience.
  • A necessary punch to the gut! A museum to tell one of the most atrocious experiences in the history of mankind, built both in external and internal spaces with a concept that goes beyond rhetoric and piety, but able to stir up feelings and make people reflect, to create empathy and let people feel horror and shame. The only sore point is the security staff, which should be less indulgent with the noisy and disrespectful tourists.
  • Highly recommend to visit it if you are in Berlin. The architecture is full of symbolic meanings. In order to fully grasped the deepened meaning of the design, it’s important to rent the audio! Totally touched by the exhibition even though some of the permanent exhibits are closed for renovation till spring 2020.
