Jewish or not, the experience of this small museum is an eye opener and a lesson in history. Took us an hour, and are happy to have made it.

The museum lives in a small corner of the Danish Royal boathouse. It is adjacent to a very peaceful garden across from the library "the black diamond". Daniel Leipskind's plan has transformed the old space remarkably. Although the Danes have been more accommodating to Jews...More

One word for this place is meshugge. The two brief films are essential and excellent. The collection is small and in waist high glass cases with tiny print so I lost interest. Add that the floors are deliberately askew to symbolize something about being off...More

Even if the museum is really small, the visit is worthy. The architect project was Libeskind, the same guy that made the museum in Berlin. Besides, the story of the Jews in Denmark is different than the history of the Jews in other places within...More

I was looking forward to learning about Jewish life in Copenhagen, especially during the WWII years and was disappointed. The Museum takes great pride in the architecture of the building, which is unique, but they should have put equal thought into their displays. The displays...More

As soon as you enter the museum, your equilibrium is off: it feels as if you are on a boat because of the ways the floors and walls are angled. The Danes were very supportive of their Jewish countrymen and helped them escape the Nazis...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
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
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
