Since opening its doors in 2001, the Jewish Museums Berlin has joined the ranks of Europe’s leading museums. Its exhibitions, educational activities, and diverse program of events make the museum a vibrant center of reflection on Jewish history and...more

Unfortunately I didn't see in advance that most of the building was to be closed (that's on me, it's quite clear on the website) but, after an hours walk, I decided to look at what was open anyway - please note that entrance is the...More
The museum, upon entering, has three principal "axes" in a broad triangle -- the brilliant axis exile, the disturbing axis of holocaust, and connecting axis of continuity -- and a "main exhibition" of Jewish everyday life, the latter was unfortunately closed on this (my) second...More
This is really (atm) an exhibition of photographs (so me interesting) and a reason to showcase the actual building. I’m sure if you love abstract architecture you’ll love it. We were pretty disappointed. In fairness their main display was shut when we visited and they...More
It's all about the building. I mean the shape of the corridors, the angles, the criss-crossing corridors, minimal signage - all intended to slightly disorient you. It's not meant to be pleasant nor easy to follow. It's not entertainment. The aim is to get you...More
I went to this museum expecting to learn a little, but not to feel too much emotion. I don't mean that in a harsh way, of course. I had - the previous day - visited the Topography of Terrors and that had emotionally jarred me,...More
The building designed by Daniel Libeskind is wonderful. The symbolism in Between the zigzag lines works and tells about the German-Jewish history. The exhibition is quite modest, but I liked it. It is not overwhelming and as such it is influential. (The modesty was caused...More
Jewish history, especially concerning Berlin and Germany, is an important topic. Unfortunately, this museum has almost no collection and what they have is very poorly displayed. Other museums in Berlin have better collections that are displayed much better. This museum needs to start over. Build...More
When I went (October 2019), about half - or more - of the museum was under construction/renovation until 2020. For the museum's sake, I hope the renovated portions were the highlights, because what I paid admission for was pretty awful. There was one main exhibition...More
I have been to several Holacaust museums and generally know what to expect, heartbreaking images of horrific treatment of human beings and soul-destroying stories. This is a visceral experience created by architect Daniel Libeskind every architectural detail (including the building itself) is in support of...More

Hi, I only saw bathrooms on the ground floor as you go in, and once inside the museum it is not easy to exit, you have to go all the way to the start or the end. Also there are only three toilets, one male one female and one disabled! They are free though. Had problems with the handles, they are tricky to open, you might think it is locked when it isn't or have trouble getting out. So if you need quick access to a toilet I think you may have a problem.
