Jewish Museum Berlin
The content of the Jewish Museum is vast, incorporating, both permanent and temporary exhibits, as well as a learning and study centre. Judaic Art and religious artifacts abound while guided tours and children's programms provide positive learning experiences on Jewish religious and cultural lifestyles for all visitors.
The building, designed by the architect Daniel Libeskind was first opened to the public in 2001 and from above the building looks like a warped star of David. Inside are many unique spaces which are as much a reason to visit this museum as the collection itself. One of the most powerful spaces is the Holocaust Tower, a 24 metre tall empty silo. It is neither heated nor cooled and the only light comes through a tiny hole in its roof.
The museum is open daily from 10am. Tickets cost €8, and children up to the age of six can enter for free. An audio guide can be hired for €3, providing an interesting commentary on the building and its collection.
