Let the largest Jewish museum in Europe impress you with its symbolic architecture and exceptional exhibitions. Discover how the zig-zag-shaped building designed by Daniel Libeskind creates its own language for Jewish history in Germany, with slanting walls, sharp angles, and gaping voids. The new core exhibition “Jewish Life in Germany: Past & Present” spans from the beginning of the early middle ages to the present day. During the chronological tour, a large space is dedicated to National Socialism and the time since the end of WWII. The exhibition alternates between historical periods and cultural insights. What is sacred in Judaism? Is there specific Jewish art? How do people practice Judaism in today’s society? Alongside the treasures of the museum’s collection including everyday objects and art, there are video and audio installations. There are also interactive stations that provide surprising insights. The museum is located centrally in the vibrant district of Berlin-Kreuzberg and is within walking distance from Checkpoint Charlie. With your JMB ticket, you are eligible to receive reduced-rate admission to the neighboring Berlinische Galerie on the day of your museum visit and the two following days.

Very surprising museum visit. The architecture of the building alone was worth the visit and very impressive. I got a new approach to Jewish life here. You should plan at least 2 hours for the visit.

I think I spent between 2-3 hours and it could have easily been much more. This museum has so much to offer and covers every different facet of Jewish history and culture.

Spent 2 hours here and could have taken the whole day. Beautiful, sensitive and very creative. Highly recommend


Beautiful design. Feel the stories. Definitely worth seeing.
