"Moving and Disorienting" Jewish Museum Tip by TempNomad

Jewish Museum, Berlin: 55 reviews and 112 photos

  Don't miss this memorial to the Jewish War Dead.
by TempNomad

We visited the Judisches Museum with the intention of spending an hour perusing the exhibits. We ended up staying for about three hours looking at the various exhibits and displays. It's multi-media experience.

It's not a Holocaust Museum; it's a history of the Jewish People in Germany, for the most part. I strongly recommend a visit. It's included in the state sponsored card, and admission is 8 Euro for a regular admission.

The visit has lots of spaces to check out. There is the concrete memorial (see travelogue) and a room of silence and reflection. There are exhibits of sound, sight, and feel (try putting on a peddlar's pack!). It's great for adults and children. Lots of stuff for everyone to experience.

The exhibits are mainly in German, but there are English translations (albeit sparse). In the film about Geman/Jewish history, the English is very sparse. In fact, most of the non-German speakers (of all nationalities) ended up leaving before the end.

Definitely set aside a few hours for this Museum!
