I'm afraid that this museum is at the opposite end of the spectrum from Berlin's Jewish Museum, which is fantastic. The problem with the Munich version is that the museum fulfills neither of the two tasks that most jewish museums assign them selves: informing non-Jews...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
