Jewish Museum Berlin


in short

Since opening its doors in 2001, the Jewish Museum Berlin has joined the ranks of Europe’s leading museums. An architectural masterpiece, Daniel Libeskind’s impressive structure has firmly established itself as one of Berlin’s most recognisable landmarks.

Jewish Museum Berlin

in detail

Its exhibitions and permanent collection, educational activities, and diverse programme of events make the museum a vibrant centre of German-Jewish history and culture. It is dedicated to serving as a forum for research, discussion, and the exchange of ideas – as a museum for everyone: young and old, Germans and non-Germans, Jews and non-Jews.

The museum’s permanent historical exhibition extends over 3,000 square metres and invites visitors to journey through two millennia of German-Jewish history. Its depictions of 13 historical periods from the Middle Ages to the present paint a vivid portrait of German-Jewish life. Artistic and everyday objects, photos and letters, interactive displays and media stations together convey the history of Jewish culture in Germany and show how tightly Jewish life and German history are interwoven.

Temporary exhibitions on cultural history, contemporary art installations, and special displays are a few of the ways in which the museum’s special exhibitions draw on a broad range of themes to complement the permanent historical exhibition.
