This Museum tells a great story - the 400 year history of Jews in Denmark - ever since King Christian IV invited Sepharadic Jews originally from Spain (whose families were deported in 1492) to come and live in Denmark and up to the miraculous handling...More

Even if the museum is really small, the visit is worthy. The architect project was Libeskind, the same guy that made the museum in Berlin. Besides, the story of the Jews in Denmark is different than the history of the Jews in other places within...More

I was looking forward to learning about Jewish life in Copenhagen, especially during the WWII years and was disappointed. The Museum takes great pride in the architecture of the building, which is unique, but they should have put equal thought into their displays. The displays...More

As soon as you enter the museum, your equilibrium is off: it feels as if you are on a boat because of the ways the floors and walls are angled. The Danes were very supportive of their Jewish countrymen and helped them escape the Nazis...More

This was a relatively small museum (much like many museums about Jews around the world). The design of the museum is very unusual inside this old building. This traced Jews throughout their history in Denmark. It had fine collection of Danish judaica.

This museum is small, but beautifully designed. The "uncomfortable" feeling that you experience the museum is emblematic of the Jew's journey in Denmark. This museum is impactful in design.

This was disappointing. There is very little to see. There is such a great story to tell of how the Danish people were able to save most of the Jewish population during the Nazi occupation, but too little of that is shown. The resistance museum...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
