Jewish Museum - Review
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.

Jewish Museum, Odessa Reviews
The main part of the museum was being renovated, so only the smaller lower part of the museum was accessible. I would describe it as more interesting abstract art exhibits rather than an informative historical exhibit, so if you're looking for something more informative I'd recommend waiting until the renovations are complete or going elsewhere. The Welcome to Jerusalem exhibit upstairs was amazing - would highly recommend it. It was a more holistic approach to the history of Jerusalem. The exhibit combined history, politics and personal vignettes of people living in Jerusalem to provide a well-rounded picture of what the city is like.
The exhibit in downstairs is really amazing! The stories are will chosen to tell a story. The way the room is build, the lights and mirrors gives the opportunity to feel it. Knowing and seeing something is different the feeling it. IT is your own interpretation. The top floor exhibition was more political about Jerusalem, I liked only two of the 15 rooms.
What can I say? This is a place with a very historical lessons. It's an amazing place to be and to know. Different kind of rooms that's make you think about WWII and this kind of thing. And also it's a very pretty place. It's just unbelievable beautiful. If you are in Berlin it's impossible to not came here. Only one problem: it's very crown. Kids running and this kind of thing.
This is one of the best museums I have been to. First audio guide that I actually enjoyed until the end. Perfect amount of content without an overload of information. Quite a moving experience with the architecture of the museum. Definitely, worth a visit!
One of the most interesting museum experiences I've ever had. The architecture is brilliant and achieves great emotional narrative that is instantly communicated. It's a very intense visit, but definitely worth it if you're in the city.
