Just in time for this year’s 1700th anniversary of Jewish life in Germany, entrance to the new core exhibition at the Jewish Museum Berlin (JMB) will be offered free of charge: The free admission is valid for all visitors as soon as the museum reopens its doors after the lockdown. The children’s world ANOHA, which is due to open this June, will also be accessible at no cost.
The new core exhibition* opened in August 2020 in the Libeskind building after years of planning and reconstruction. Rich, diverse and interactive, it presents “Jewish Life in Germany: Past and Present” on 3,500 square meters (almost 38,000 square feet)—from the early Middle Ages until the present day. Visitors are invited to immerse themselves in Jewish culture with all their senses, e.g. by listening to Jewish music or by finding out in interviews how and why Jews follow the commandments.
The known architectural highlights, such as the Garden of Exile, the Holocaust-Tower and the installation Shalekhet (Fallen Leaves), are also open to visitors free of charge. Extra fees will apply for visitors of temporary exhibitions (from the age of 18), as well as for guided tours, workshops, selected events, and other offers.
Open: Daily, 10am–7pm
* With funding provided by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media on the basis of a resolution by the German Bundestag. Supported by the Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin and the U.S. Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin.
