  • A visit is a very good complement to the visit in the NS documentation centre on King square. Many different multimedia presentations of Jewish culture and its representatives. On the 2nd floor of an impressive representation of the fates of Jewish athletes, good sized bookshop in the foyer.

  • I thought this was a really great way to engage the visitor with the exhibit. Wonderful too that one of the curators keep coming round to chesck if visitors had any questions. I like the grit of the p...  more »
  • I think is worth looking at opportunities in the history of Judaism and the Jewish people for the Japanese is a Jewish Museum in Munich, but not only. Exhibitions relating to Judaism, is rich in building, stands between Jacob's Church and synagogue.

  • 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.
