Jewish Museum Berlin


Tips for visiting the Jewish Museum Berlin

The Jewish Museum Berlin (Jüdisches Museum Berlin) is the largest Jewish museum in Europe, a whopping 38,000 square feet! Plan to spend at least 2-3 hours exploring all the exhibits inside.

Your Jewish Museum Berlin tickets give you access to the history of Jews in Germany from the Middle Ages to the present day, and a visit offers a new perspective for most people. It can also be quite an emotional journey – bring some tissues.

Your Jewish Museum Berlin tickets are valid from 10 am to 7 pm daily. The museum is closed on the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). It's also closed on Christmas Eve, as well as the day of the ceremony for the Award for Understanding and Tolerance.

Keep in mind the staff start clearing the exhibitions at around 6.30 pm, ahead of the 7 pm closing time, so if you're going later in the day, be sure to give yourself enough time to see it all. If you want to try avoiding the crowds, go as early as possible, mid-week. Weekends are often the busiest.

The museum café by eßkultur serves up delicious daily lunch specials, including coffee and homemade cakes. You're welcome to enjoy food you've brought yourself in the Glass Courtyard and in the museum garden, which are both nice spots for coffee and contemplation on a sunny day.

The Glass Courtyard and garden are accessible without Jewish Museum Berlin tickets.

The simplest way to get to the Jewish Museum Berlin is by U-Bahn – Berlin's subway system. Hop on the underground line U6 to Kochstraße, and you'll reach the museum in just ten minutes by foot. Show your tickets early and beat the subway crowds, as well as the museum crowds!

The buses M29, M41, and 248 also all stop close to the museum.

The core exhibition is suitable for children. There are many interactive stations to make things interesting for little ones.

There's an entire realm for children, which opened in 2021. ANOHA - Children's World of the Jewish Museum is in the former wholesale market hall opposite the Jewish Museum Berlin. Based on the story of Noah's Ark from the Torah, kids between the ages of 3 and 10 have almost 3,000 square meters to explore, discover and play, with hands-on and interactive elements. A huge wooden ark is packed with 150 animal sculptures that children can pet and even feed!

The Jewish Museum Berlin has also expanded its existing program for children with workshops specially designed for children and families, school groups, and education professionals. There's a kids' program during the Jazz in the Garden concerts in the summer, too.

About: Jewish Museum Berlin

Designed by Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind, the Jewish Museum Berlin is one of the German capital's most iconic buildings. More than a repository of Jewish cultural history (although it certainly is that too), the building's startling architecture and design are central to the museum experience itself. The place is full of symbolic spaces that reflect the lived reality and history of German-Jews.

The popular Pergamon Museum in Berlin is a great solution to a first world problem; it was built because there wasn't enough room in the nearby Bode Museum for all its artistic and archaeological relics. Construction carried on even through WWI and the great inflation of the 1920s. The then completed Pergamon was also badly damaged at the end of WWII (though fortunately its contents escaped damage).

In 1999 Museum Island (Museumsinsel in German) was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It sure deserves the distinction: this small island on the Spree has a singular collection of buildings, all filled with art and cultural artifacts. The five museums are: Altes Museum (Old Museum), Neues Museum (New Museum), Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery), Bode Museum, and Pergamon Museum. Each museum is a world-renowned storehouse of works of significant cultural value. Taken together this is one of the finest museum complexes in the world.

The Neue Nationalgalerie at the Berlin Kulturforum is a world-class architectural icon from the mind of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969), built to house 20th-century art. A major refurbishment was carried out during the late 2010s to bring the ‘60s-era building up to modern standards. The column-free “universal space” is a classic of modernism and serves as the perfect location for works from European and North American masters like Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Salvador Dalí, Francis Bacon, and Andy Warhol, amongst many others. Some of the museum’s most famous works are Potsdamer Platz by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, The Skat Players by Otto Dix, and Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue IV by Barnett Newman. A rotating calendar of special exhibitions also takes place in the Neue Nationalgalerie, so keep an eye out for their latest offerings.

This highly interactive museum lets visitors feel what it was like to live behind the wall - in the DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik). It chronicles, via video and film, daily life as it was under Communism. The museum also includes hundreds of ways to help you experience life behind the iron curtain, including watching East German TV shows, being 'bugged', voting in a (rigged) election and taking a (simulated) car ride in an iconic Trabi.
