The Jewish Museum Munich

The Jewish Museum Munich is a vibrant place showcasing the diversity of Jewish history and culture as well as the wide variety of Jewish lifeworlds and identities, while also focusing on the subjects of migration and inclusion.

Through its exhibitions and publications, its cultural education program and events, the Jewish Museum Munich strives to be in constant dialog with its visitors and, like a research laboratory open to continuous change, explore actual and future questions based on the knowledge of the past and to present these for discussion. Similarly, Jewish history, culture, and art are always regarded as a reflection of diverse identities and life plans, and as the result of interaction between Jewish and non-Jewish lifeworlds.

To make your visit to the Jewish Museum Munich a personally enriching experience, visitor assistants on all exhibition levels and at the information desk are happy to answer your questions at any time and talk to you about Jewish culture, history, and religion, as well as any aspect of our exhibitions.
