  • It's not a museum about the Holocaust, although the building is representative of the facts, is much more instructive about Jewish culture.

  • There is nothing to see about jews and the price is too high. 6 eur/pro person.
  • 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.
  • 欧洲的犹太博物馆主要是以犹太人大屠杀为主题,在我们看来,这样的博物馆多数都具有道歉色彩,但这里不同!通过查看印在玻璃窗上的引述你就会明白这家博物馆与其他家不同,一些引述有种“藐视”的味道,没有道歉意味。你可以在里面看到常设展览以及临设展览,这些都很不错。临时展览是卡通形式的,我们可以简单地看到犹太人是如何遭受德国人侵害的。到慕尼黑这个地方是一定要来的!
  • Was there in "the long night of the museums". I learned a lot about Jewish customs. Staff was very friendly and kompitent.
