Jewish Museum Berlin is one of Europe's largest venues dedicated to Jewish history. A sobering exhibit dedicated to the reign of the Third Reich presents Germany through the eyes of the Jewish minority. Important events in Jewish history are portrayed via fine art, manuscripts, photographs, and family memorabilia. Two millennia of German-Jewish history are on display in the permanent exhibit space, as well as in several changing presentation areas. All of this is spread over two buildings, one of which is designed by architect Daniel Libeskind. The staff can accompany you through the exhibits. Or you can use an audio guide and explore this comprehensive history museum at your own pace.

We were awestruck by the overall design, symmetry and harmony between the building structure and the artifacts... this museum needs at least 2 days to explore

Too much Anne, too little frank.
By far one of the best museum I've ever visited. Every room you enter brings more enlightenment of how Jewish people have suffered in the past. Alongside this it also shows how they've overcome adversity, stay strong, keep their faith and is educational in the sense of Jewish culture. The museum itself is also a joy, you have to see it to truly understand it. Highly recommend visiting and set aside a whole day as it will take the whole day to take everything in.
