Jewish Museum Munich: What do you need to know?

  • The museum is part of the Jewish Center at St.-Jakobs-Platz in the city center, together with the synagogue and the Jewish Community.
  • It conveys the diversity of Jewish history, art and culture up to the present day.
  • A special focus is on the Jewish religion with its annual festivals (Yom Kippur, Hanukkah or Passover) and rites of passage (circumcision, bar mitzvah, marriage and death).
  • The Holocaust is not the focus of the exhibition. 

From Hanukkah to Bar Mitzvah: The permanent exhibition

The permanent exhibition "Voices_Places_Times" in the basement vividly illustrates the range of Jewish identities. Expressive exhibits thematize Munich's Jewish history.

Seven installations tell visually and acoustically about Jewish life and make it tangible for the visitors. A special focus is dedicated to the Jewish religion with its annual festivals (Yom Kippur, Hanukkah or Passover) and rites of passage (circumcision, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding and death).
