  • We never got to enter, but the buildings are impressive and interesting from the architectural point of view

  • A nice surprise the Jewish Museum Munich. I never expected to learn so much about the history of the city through the history of Jewish families that have historically always handled the trade of hops. Very interesting.

  • Great building. Interesting architecture. An educational exhibition on Jewish everyday objects as presence exhibition - interesting and should be present as part of the Allgemeinwissens. Also a temporary exhibition to the Jewish tradition of beer brewing. The information content of the exhibitions is very limited. Moreover, the impression is given, the brewing of beer was invented by the Jews. I find the entrance fee of EUR 6,-per person far too high. In addition, it sucks a bit if an absolute Photography ban is imposed without apparent reason.

  • There is nothing to see about jews and the price is too high. 6 eur/pro person.
  • Not much to see
  • Very small, the exhibitions were rather basic and not particularly exciting.
  • It wasn't a Jewish museum so much as a Jew Museum. As in, "This is a jew. Here are some of the sterotypes and here we show that they're not true." No real feel for how much life there was let alone for the depth and richness of the culture that was destroyed. Much more space was devoted to the traces of Jewish culture that exist in modern popculture in Germany. Go there if you're worried your child is becoming antisemitic. Don't go there if you want some real depth.
  • Interesting to some, but for my tastes only in the basement. Lame, I found the upper floors. The entrance fee is very high. The spontaneous lady who has taken the tour was very good.
