Nearly the whole exhibition area as well as the new Glass Courtyard are accessible for wheelchair users. There is just one small area in the permanent exhibition which can only be accessed via stairs.

A 9 % slope leads up to the main entrance. The Axes in the Libeskind Building have slopes between 2.65 % (to the stairs) and 3.9 % (to the Holocaust Tower). The incline on the sides is 1.5 % maximum.

There is a parking space for visitors in possession of a disabled badge directly in front of the Museum entrance.

Wheelchairs can be borrowed at the cloakroom.

The Jewish Museum has two disabled bathrooms: one is situated at the back of the entrance area, the other in the basement of the Libeskind Building.

Visitors with impaired hearing may view a video introduction to the Museum in German Sign Language (DGS).
