The Jewish Museum Berlin Audio Guide

The JMB app takes you not only through the core exhibition, but into 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 a single visit? The JMB app offers highlights and architecture tours. Choose a tour based on how much time you have and follow our directions to guide you through the museum. 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.

We recommend installing the app on your phone before your visit and streaming the contents while in the museum. Remember to bring your headphones and charge your smartphone battery before your visit.

An App with an Inclusive Approach

We have developed accessible options in the JMB app for visitors with visual impairments, hearing impairments and learning difficulties. Visitors who are blind or have limited vision can use the app with a screen reader. In addition, auditory tactile instructions and inclusive audio descriptions enable a largely barrier-free visit to the museum.

Visitors with hearing impairments are offered a tour with 20 videos in German Sign Language and all audio content as read-along texts.

Visitors with learning difficulties can find 50 audio files in German plain language. The app also comes with a simplified operating mode that automatically uses plain language.
