The exhibition tells of the innovations of the epoch in several showcases with different focuses. Berlin, Berlin focuses on the Prussian capital as a melting pot and center of change during the Enlightenment. Double Wagner examines the Jewish reception of Richard Wagner’s music and person. In Religion and Reform, visitors have the opportunity to enter synagogs that no longer exist today.
