Berlin: Jewish Museum Berlin Entrance Ticket

1. Berlin: Jewish Museum Berlin Entrance Ticket

Let the largest Jewish museum in Europe impress you with its symbolic architecture and exceptional exhibitions. Discover how the zig-zag-shaped building designed by Daniel Libeskind creates its own language for Jewish history in Germany, with slanting walls, sharp angles, and gaping voids. The new core exhibition “Jewish Life in Germany: Past & Present” spans from the beginning of the early middle ages to the present day. During the chronological tour, a large space is dedicated to National Socialism and the time since the end of WWII. The exhibition alternates between historical periods and cultural insights. What is sacred in Judaism? Is there specific Jewish art? How do people practice Judaism in today’s society? Alongside the treasures of the museum’s collection including everyday objects and art, there are video and audio installations. There are also interactive stations that provide surprising insights. Your ticket also includes entry to the temporary exhibition, Yael Bartana - Redemption Now. Discover the early and recent works of this contemporary video artist, which explores ideas of identity, memory politics, nations, and social movements. Her best-known work, “And Europe Will Be Stunned”, is also on display. The museum is located centrally in the vibrant district of Berlin-Kreuzberg and is within walking distance from Checkpoint Charlie. With your JMB ticket, you are eligible to receive reduced-rate admission to the neighboring Berlinische Galerie on the day of your museum visit and the two following days. The Berlinische Galerie is only a 5 min stroll away from the JMB.

Exceptional Architecture has a symbolism that shakes your senses. Magnificent place that highlights the history but also the Jewish customs. Experiential museum and memorial to spiritual grandeur and sobriety. For a better experience, bring your headphones to follow the initiatory and interactive course thanks to the free museum app (in several languages)

We had Eran as our guide and he was amazing .. Perfectly strictured tour of almost 2 and a half hours. Lots of info we did not know and sites we had not seen despite several visits to Berlin. Eran is very good storyteller and gives the tour a personal touch.

The museum is amazing but at the entrance the woman didn't recognize my ticket. She said it wasn't a ticket that complied with the norm. However, I managed to enter the museum.

Ver much worth the visit. There is a great deal to see in the museum. We used the audio guide which was very helpful. Suggestion is to spend 1/2 a day there: 3-4 hrs are needed.

Fantastic experience. So informative, excellent days education
