We loved visiting this little museum. This is another reason to get the Copenhagen Card as the museum is included in the fee. Liebiskind’s design echoes that of the Berlin Jewish museum. Make sure to save time to chitchat with the lovely people who run...More

This museum described life in the Jewish community in the 1800's and beyond. The story of the protection of Danish Jews during World War II was especially interesting.

The striking design of the museum by Daniel Liebeskind is similar to the Jewish Museum in Berlin. It is meant to slightly disorient you and does this. The exhibits are well selected and carry good descriptions. The video of Jewish-Danish history is excellent. The gardens...More

Not a lot of history to tell here, but it is nice to see a Jewish museum here. Some nice Judaica. Interesting to see the explanation of how the community broke off into factions when disagreements on observance came up. Different community, same story.

This is a museum for a “slice of life” of Jews coming to Denmark over a several hundred year period, their integration and acculturation and the Danes relative tolerance and humanity.

I try to visit Jewish museums wherever I travel. I was unfortunately quite disappointed with the museum in Copenhagen. I know it was designed by Daniel Liebeskind who also designed the museum in Berlin. This is on a much smaller scale in a renovated space,...More

This is a small yet impactful museum. Great way to learn about the history of Jews in Denmark. The museum interior is an interesting architectural design.

We had hoped for an in-depth story of the rescue of the Danish Jews during the Holocaust, but while it's mentioned, the back story is not revealed. I had never heard about the exodus of Jews from Lodz, Poland to Scandinavia in 1968, and that...More

The museum is rather small, 450sq.m, located in a historical marine building, it’s interior designed by Daniel Libeskind. 400 years history incl. October 1943 saving of Danish Jews, told in a simple straight forward way.

Daniel Libeskind’s design alone makes this a worthwhile visit. Though the museum is minimalistic in the information it presents, it carries a power punch. It gives a bit of historical background on the Jewish community and appropriately celebrates the tenacity of the Danish people in...More

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

Dear Judy We do have slanted and wavy floors at the museum, but it normally does not present a problem for any kind of wheelchair. There are no stairs or steps inside the entrance in our permanent exhibition. I think you... More
