Jewish Museum Munich: Exhibitions, guided tours, program
Experience Jewish history, art and culture at St. Jakob's Square
The Jewish Museum (Jüdisches Museum) conveys a picture of the diversity of Jewish history, art and culture in Munich: with a look at the Holocaust, but without making it the center of attention.
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).
Changing exhibitions, events and library
Part of the museum's self-image is to offer a space for research, open discussions and encounters. With this in mind, the museum offers, in addition to the permanent exhibition:
- changing exhibitions that illuminate individual aspects and encourage communication (such as Jewish artists, places of exile or the history of the experience of Jews in Munich after 1945)
- regular events on Jewish topics
- a library and bookstore with relevant literature
- as well as in-depth tours for adults
