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.

  • A place full of history as a way to remember people that must be remembered. As a foreigner that lived in Europe for a couple months this museum was an eye opening about the Jewish people and their heritage. It's just not about the Holocaust, it's about the past, present and future. I believe it's a very original concept and idea. Thank you for giving student discounts. I would recommend if you are in Berlin and interested in this type of museums (because it's not in the museum area). I would really recommend to go no matter age or nationality.

  • An amazing building full of people’s memories and experiences which I found highly moving. The art installations were thought provoking and fitted well with the message the museum is trying to convey. I would really recommend visiting this museum!

  • This museum has great, well though out exhibitions. There is a "welcome to Jerusalem" special exhibition on the first level, which takes you through the past and current conflicts of the city in a thorough and educating way. The permanent exhibition was also worth seeing/ space and void can be used as channel of communication.

  • Didn't like it. Amazing building. The most interesting part for me was the gate to this claustrophobic room (a little bit hidden if anyone near you is entering or you don't read the wall texts) Respect to the exhibition: too many valuable objects but the form of presentation was really uncomfortable (maybe that is what the architect wanted us to feel)

  • Most amazing museum. So interesting, full of historical information and very interactive. Architectural amazing. Really plays on sense to make you feel different emotions.
