Once upon a time in the late 19th century and early 20th century Odessa had the 3rd highest population of Jews of any city in the world. Their contributions to the arts, sciences and culture, especially to the early development of cinema in Europe was significant. This museum focuses on this rich cultural integration with a collection of documents, photographs, news, religious apparel, musical instruments and art. The museum also has exhibition of what a regular Jewish family in Odessa might have looked like in terms of the arrangement of their home. Artefacts related to professions such as shoemaking and hairdressing are also present. The museum is slightly unusual from other Jewish museums in that it only dedicates a small room to commemorate the Holocaust.

  • General: The museum presents an incredible repository of exhibitions on the Jews heritage, lifestyle and history. Good: ✓ The sheer amount is amazing! It literally has every subject covered ✓ audio guide was great ✓ The tower is incredible experience, it is literally unique Bad: × too much for one visit, it takes more than 5 hours to see all of it. Consider making like express, main and full tour × those wheel couches short films were pretty lame

  • The Jewish Museum in Berlin is a wonderful testiment to the broad spectrum of Jewish people and their contributions to German and worldwide life. The architecture of the building is extraordinary. There are no right angle walls and no ordinary boxes for rooms. It strikes me that this says two things. First that you can't fit a Jewish person or family into one box. There is much diversity in Jewish people. Secondly the building design provides some disorientation that leaves the visitor with a feeling of being outside of social normalcy as many Jewish people have experienced. Great and different museum.

  • No words. Only went down. All the way into the bunker. Next time I will go up. But this needed to be done. Love #Berlin

  • If you're into world history, this is a must visit museum when in Berlin. It is beautifully designed, with one section showcasing historical artifacts, paintings and day today objects on the earlier Jewish history. Another section is dedicated to Jews in Germany and Holocaust. Museum stands out due to it's unique design and a number of architectural wonders aimed at letting you soak in the history, rather than just see it.

  • Great Museum. I like that it is not forcing a narrative on you, but exhibits a great deal of primary sources and leaves the interpretation to the visitor. I understand from the comments that this seems boring or confusing to people. In the end it allows people to be historians in their own right. History is about evaluating sources and then creating a narrative. So I am grateful to the museum for allowing this freedom.
