Permanent Exhibition

Our historical permanent exhibition chooses an unusual perspective on the history of Germany and German-speaking territories. Two Millennia of German Jewish History lets the visitor see the Germany of the past and present through the eyes of the Jewish minority. This point of view presents well-known historical events with a new focus and greater complexity alongside the fates of individuals and families.

Special Exhibitions
  • Accompanying the 7th Council of the European Mathematical Society in Berlin, the exhibition "Transcending Tradition" explores the working lives and activities of Jewish mathematicians in German-speaking academic culture (17 July – 4 September 2016).
  • From 23 September, the myth of a man who can create artificial life is the focus of our large exhibition about the golem.
