Question/feedback about visiting the museum
We offer a multisensory architecture tour for people with visual impairments, which takes place four times a year and can also be reserved for groups.
You can borrow an audio guide with information about the architecture and the permanent exhibition for 3 euros. The audio tours are offered in eight different languages: German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Hebrew, Russian, and Japanese.
Taking pictures and videos inside the museum is permitted as long as it's for purely personal use. However, you may not use tripods, flash, or selfie sticks.
Unfortunately, the museum does not currently offer free WiFi. There is, however, a hotspot provided by Deutsche Telekom.
All exhibition areas are accessible to strollers with the exception of one small area of the permanent exhibition which is reachable by a staircase.
At the museum, the coat check staff are responsible for lost and found items.
The shop near our museum's entrance carries numerous books, posters, postcards, original souvenirs, Judaica, and holiday supplies such as Hanukkah candles.
Unfortunately, bringing pets to the museum is not permitted, with the exception of assistance dogs such as seeing-eye dogs.
The entire permanent exhibition is designed to be family-friendly with playful, hands-on elements so that parents can experience the museum together with their children. We also offer special programs for children aged 6 and up.
Schmus, the museum café, always offers a rotating vegetarian or vegan dish (or soup of the day). Vegetarians and vegans will also find plenty to eat at the salad bar.
