Jewish Museum Berlin is one of Europe's largest venues dedicated to Jewish history. A sobering exhibit dedicated to the reign of the Third Reich presents Germany through the eyes of the Jewish minority. Important events in Jewish history are portrayed via fine art, manuscripts, photographs, and family memorabilia. Two millennia of German-Jewish history are on display in the permanent exhibit space, as well as in several changing presentation areas. All of this is spread over two buildings, one of which is designed by architect Daniel Libeskind. The staff can accompany you through the exhibits. Or you can use an audio guide and explore this comprehensive history museum at your own pace.

  • Interesting physical space - cross between art and history. The museum feels more dedicated to creating an emotional response to Judaism and the Jewish history, and educating about the Jewish faith...

  • One of the best museums I've ever been to. We're actually coming back tomorrow! So engaging, and every detail is carefully designed and deeply evocative. I would skip the Berlin Wall Museum and come here instead.
  • Fantastically designed museum that captures the history of the Jewish population across the times in Germany. The installations are very modern and detailed. You can expect to learn about the complete history of Jews in Germany from Jews of the Worms all the way to the present day. The building itself is spectacularly designed to reflect Jewish history in Germany. There is also plenty of information about the design of the building so that people (like me who can't comprehend design concepts) can fully appreciate all the work that went into its construction. The temporary exhibits are also worth catching!!
