This is a tiny museum near the Tower and Danish Parliament that's worth a look. The facility give a pictorial and written history of the 400 years during which Jews have lived in Copenhagen. The focus, of course, is the plight of these people upon Nazi occupation, particularly the strongarm tactics in 1943. There were only 3000 or so jews... More

Worth a trip to learn the history and unique experience of Danish Jewry, but does not require a lot of time.

A small but informative museum, very interesting layout - but some of the displays are hard to read (the English wall texts are nearly impossible to read) - and you have to almost smoosh your face up against the glass to see certain things or read descriptions. Very odd. Still, worth a visit (only 60DKK to get in) - start... More

I've been to many Jewish museums around the world and the reviews I read about this made me hesitate to see this one. I'm happy that I saw it but, as others have stated, there's not much to see here and the shape of the exhibits makes it hard to get close enough to fully see everything or to read... More

We visited in Ocotber, 2016. The museum is acclaimed as an architectural wonder, having been designed by Daniel Libeskind. This may make the museum unique but it also makes it difficult to get around. The floor tilts making the exhibits hard to look into. The interior of he museum is small. Moving through the museum, you jump from historical information... More

This is located in an interesting area of Copenhagen next to the Black Diamond ( National Library). The interior is designed like a ship and the displays are themed mostly covering the 2WW. It was well laid out and worth a visit.

I'm Jewish and looked forward to visiting the Jewish museum. It really wasn't worth 50 DK. There is a short film about the history of the Jews in Denmark that was o.k. but there were only a few other exhibits that were worthwhile such as the Danish Jewish population being transported to Sweden so the Nazis couldn't send them to...

First, you can't find it even though you're in the courtyaard, terrible signage. Then they want $15 p/p for a 30 minute museum! It was absolutely embarrasing. DO NOT GO!

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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
