  • Important and good museum with a lot of quality information and stuff that wants to teach you more if you dare to ask. Dive into that importatn part of history that marked Munich just a few decades ago.
  • I found the history of the Jewish people of Munich informative but I did not feel engaged. The temporary exhibit stems from fine observations as well as deeply thought elements. I found it too abstract in a way.
  • This museum is not what we thought it would be. Not a lot to see and not very easy to understand
  • Unfortunately 2/3 of the museum is closed at the moment, what I did see was definitely interesting.
  • The permanent exhibition was excellent although the temporary exhibition on borders was just so-so to my mind.
