Was there with my father on July 10 and found the exhibits and information well organized and presented well. Obviously a touchy subject in Germany but at the same time was educational and well done. I highly recommend if you have two hours to spare.

We were happy to see that a Jewish museum was recently erected in the city of Nazism’s birth. It is small but poignant. Although it doesn’t offer many exhibits, it has an interesting collection of cartoons that question why mankind doesn’t understand that we are...More

We spent about two hours in this museum, the individual experience of Munich Jews was pleasantly presented. The permanent exhibition on the bottom follow was easy to follow and understand as it walked us through the voices, lives of individuals. The Cartoon Exhibit was a...More

I'm afraid that this museum is at the opposite end of the spectrum from Berlin's Jewish Museum, which is fantastic. The problem with the Munich version is that the museum fulfills neither of the two tasks that most jewish museums assign them selves: informing non-Jews...More

This is hands-down the worst Museum we have ever been to. I use the term "Museum" very loosely. Not only was it very expensive but we all came out more confused about Jewish History than we were when we went in. The building was huge,...More
