    This is hands-down the worst Museum we have ever been to. I use the term "Museum" very loosely. Not only was it very expensive but we all came out more confused about Jewish History than we were when ...  more »

    There are many Jewish museums in the German-speaking countries, you can take at the least, such as Berlin and Vienna offer too much and neglecting the essential, here in Munich, not much is available but what is offered is recyclable - the special exhibition is more expendable

  • Museum itself is really small and can be seen in 1h but make sure you get a guide tour (they are free). Our guide was absolutely amazing and we learned so much in 2 hours.
  • Would not call this place as a museum but meeting, conference centre etc. The place has no any collection to display, anyway there are some displays about history, religion and tradition.
  • Shows history of the country, including an entertaining, but also eye-opening, comic strip
  • There is nothing to see about jews and the price is too high. 6 eur/pro person.
  • We loved it
