A very interesting museum with lots of items of both historical significance, cultural and of course the Holocaust. Important to remember this is in Berlin so would be difficult to actually establish and maintain. The visit should be experiences after visiting Jewish Memorial and underground museum near Brandenburg Gate to align events .

It is easy to spend many hours in this wonderful building - itself a piece of scuplture - as it contains such extensive information on the history of the Jewish population of Europe and Germany in particular. It hardly needs saying that the items on display which had belonged to Jewish families expelled from Germany during the hideous years of... More

The museum building has a nice architecture. Right at the entrance, you will find actual items from Jewish families with pictures. As you continue through all the rooms, it turns more into an experience than a museum itself, with rooms, lighting and sounds projected for this. You will easily spend at least an hour there. If you're on time frame... More

An interesting museum, the different ways of showing information and pieces was really nice! Also the building was a treat for the eye! Good price (3 euro for students) for an interesting place.

An absolute must see when you are in Berlin. We went there on our first day and it is easy to combine with checkpoint Charley and the wall museum. Take enough time, because you'll need it. The staff is not very hospitable and looks highly bored, but when you are in the museum, it is great how the history of... More

An excellent museum and a must visit whilst in Berlin. The Golem exhibition was remarkable and the whole experience was moving and extremely informative. The free documentation produced by the Museum was particularly helpful.

The headset and commentary very worthwhile and easy to use. The flow at the start is confusing but once you get up to the upper levels it is easy to follow. We had just been to the Jewish museum in Prague so it was a good addition to that. Cafe has excellent coffee and hot chocolate.

We went there with 110 students we brought to Berlin. We saw mainly the temporary exhibition which was well curated and the display of artwork was very professional. The rest of the museum is impressive and very informative as well as entertaining as it does have several interactive displays. Families with kids would really enjoy this.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
