The Jewish Museum Berlin Audio Guide

The JMB App takes you not only on a visit to the core exhibition, but on a walk in the Museum Garden and also tells you about Daniel Libeskind’s striking architecture. Audios, videos, images, texts, and games convey the museum content. Are you wondering how to view the 3,000 square meter core exhibition in one visit? The JMB App offers themed tours of highlights, biographies, stories, and Judaism, but alternatively you can stroll around freely and select specific items from over 100 stations. And if you you’re not sure where you are, an interactive map offers orientation.

For a fee, you may borrow a device to use the JMB app on.

An App with an Inclusive Approach

We have developed the JMB App’s barrier-free program for our visitors with blindness or limited vision. The app can be used with a screen reader, and acoustic tactile instructions and audio descriptions enable a largely barrier-free visit to the museum.

Visitors with hearing impairments are offered all audio content as read-along texts. This offer will be expanded for future versions.
