Would you like to visit the Jewish Museum Berlin with a school group as a one-day excursion or as part of a longer class trip? Are you planning on expanding upon knowledge from school lessons at the museum? We have adapted our offers to meet different requirements. On the one hand, you will find guided tours and workshops here suitable for class trips, and on the other programs coordinated with the Berlin and Brandenburg curriculum for the subjects ethics and history. All our digital offers can also be found on this page.
Group tours can be booked by email or phone. We will be happy to advise you on our topics, workshops, and other programs.
Bookings and Information:
T +49 (0)30 259 93 305
(We are reachable from Monday to Friday, 10 am to 4 pm)
In order for the tour to start on time, you should arrive 15 minutes before the program starts. Please make sure to take this extra quarter hour into account in your scheduling.
Currently you can book guided tours with a starting time between 10.15 am and 12.15 am.
A maximum of 15 people may participate in one tour. If the group is larger, it will be divided. In such cases, we request that you reserve as many different topics as tour groups.
You and your class join the digital workshop via the Zoom video conferencing platform. Details on how to join the workshop will be sent to you in advance by email after your booking has been confirmed.
Please allow approximately 15 minutes before the workshop begins to connect your class digitally to the museum. A guide will assist you in this.
The following technical requirements at your school are necessary for you to participate in a workshop:
- A web-enabled computer that can connect to the Zoom video conferencing platform – this connects your classroom to the museum.
- A smartboard, a large monitor or a beamer connected to the computer running the Zoom video conferencing software, enabling your students to see the video and the guide.
- Speakers (often integrated into the smartboard) connected to the computer used by Zoom. This way your students will hear the video and understand the guide.
- For communication and group work: At least one web-enabled computer or tablet per group (of about 4-5 people) so they can work with PDFs, audio, and video, and do Internet research. Students can also use these devices to communicate with the guide or participate in interactive surveys.
The following technical requirements are necessary for a version of the workshop where your students and the guide can hear and see each other and engage in dialog:
- An external web camera or a camera integrated into the computer running the Zoom video conferencing software, enabling the guide to see your students.
- An external microphone connected to the computer over which Zoom is running. This allows the guide to hear your students.
The digital workshop is conducted using the Zoom video conferencing platform, under the license of the Jewish Museum Berlin. Only you receive the invitation and password by e-mail. The connection is additionally encrypted.
Data storage during the workshop
- No personal data will be passed on to the producer of the videoconferencing platform. You do not have to register with Zoom or download the program to use the service. All you need is the latest version of an Internet browser and Internet access.
- If you wish to participate in the workshop but do not wish to disclose any personal data, you may use an alias or pseudonym.
Video recording during the workshop
- The Jewish Museum Berlin will never make audio, video, or screen recordings (screenshots) of digital workshops without your consent.
All tours and workshops for school groups are free for welcome classes.
This free offer is made possible through the support of the Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin.
