  • 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.
