This thematic museum intelligently and innovatively reflects the destabilizing experience of the scope of Jewish life and history in Copenhagen. The short intro video nicely sets the historical stage and context, while the exhibits flesh out this important story -- including the incredible way that...More

This museum, tucked away near Christiansborg, was a delightful surprise. We were not aware of who designed the museum as we walked up to the front door, but the minute we saw the inlaid light strips in the concrete sidewalk, we suddenly realized it was...More

I don't think Daniel Libeskind did anyone a favor by designing the interior spaces with slanting floors and walls. I get that it's a feeling of discomfort and not being sure of how you fit in, which is what much of the exhibit is about,...More

The story of Jewish life in Denmark is one of the rare examples of successful integration during a time when Jewish life elsewhere in Europe was almost wiped out. My own grandfather left Belarus in the late 1890's with his brother, fleeing poverty, the pogroms...More

Well worth spending an hour to understand how the Danish people saved so many from the Nazis. Very informative and supported by a good group of advisers inside. Highly recommend.

I trully enjoyed visiting the Dannish Jewish Museum, called "Mitzva" (Hebrew for Judaism commandment). The Museum has a stunning interior design and great exhibits illustrating the Danish Jewish history and culture. The staff was especially friendly and helpful. I would gladly visit the museum again!

The exterior was wonderful. The interior, while interesting was tiny and had very little. It was hard to follow. I just know there could've been so much more in less deliberately and confusing compressed space. There is so much to the story of Denmark and...More

architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
