I thought this was a really great way to engage the visitor with the exhibit. Wonderful too that one of the curators keep coming round to chesck if visitors had any questions. I like the grit of the people portrayed in the sports exhibition. It...More

Interesting insight into the long (and troubled) Jewish experience in Munich and Bavaria. I certainly was unaware of the Jewish connection to the brewing industry which was featured in the special exhibition (they controlled the hops industry). Obviously much of the more recent history is...More

We were expecting a Jewish museum in Germany to be focused on the Second World War. This museum is more focused towards Judaism and their religious practices, which is most definitely interesting. I think we just got our hopes up following a visit to the...More

Compared to some of the heavy hitting Jewish museums, this one is a bit underwhelming but still worth a visit. Odd layout in that the permanent exhibition is on the first floor and focuses on Jewish life in Munich -that was well done and interesting....More

This museum is not a holocaust memorial. It has a great permanent exhibit that described the history of the Munich Jewish community. When I was there, the temporary exhibit described the influence of Jewish beer makers in Munich. Everthing was well done, and all exhibits...More

The only part of the museum that was at all interesting was the floor that reviews the history of Jews in Munich, but even that lacked some substance. The temporary exhibit was two whole floors of Jewish enterprises with beer, mostly in the US. This...More
