The Danish Jewish Museum provides a history of the Jewish community of Denmark with a short film, exhibits about the history of the community and some limited Judaica exhibits. It is quite expensive - 60 Krona for adults but children are free. It is a...More

We eventually found the Museum hiding behind the Library. Only by asking many many people where it was, did we manage to locate it. Not well sign posted. The museum is small but modern and very well worth a visit.

The building is more interesting than the exhibits. There really isn't a lot to see here, but if you're in the neighborhood, stop by. Also, the gift shop is nice.

It's important to thank the Danes for there open mildness and attitude that no one should be persecuted. This museum helps to explain Jewish Life in Denmark from the 1800's. The museum is built to keep you off your center so that you get the...More

We loved visiting this little museum. This is another reason to get the Copenhagen Card as the museum is included in the fee. Liebiskind’s design echoes that of the Berlin Jewish museum. Make sure to save time to chitchat with the lovely people who run...More

This museum described life in the Jewish community in the 1800's and beyond. The story of the protection of Danish Jews during World War II was especially interesting.

The striking design of the museum by Daniel Liebeskind is similar to the Jewish Museum in Berlin. It is meant to slightly disorient you and does this. The exhibits are well selected and carry good descriptions. The video of Jewish-Danish history is excellent. The gardens...More

Not a lot of history to tell here, but it is nice to see a Jewish museum here. Some nice Judaica. Interesting to see the explanation of how the community broke off into factions when disagreements on observance came up. Different community, same story.

This is a museum for a “slice of life” of Jews coming to Denmark over a several hundred year period, their integration and acculturation and the Danes relative tolerance and humanity.
