Thank you

Dear Visitors, dear Friends, Supporters and Partners, dear Colleagues from the museum world and in academia,

We – the staff of the Jewish Museum Berlin – would like to express our deep gratitude for the support we have received in the past days and weeks. The encouraging words as well as productive criticisms that have reached us in letters and public statements, in personal conversations, in messages and on social networks have shown us that our work and programming is valued.

It is wonderful to have you at our side as sympathetic and critical companions – throughout the past 18 years since the inauguration of the museum and into the future.

With the turbulent weeks behind us, we will continue our work and focus all of our energies on the major projects ahead of us – the new permanent exhibition and the children’s museum. We are already looking forward to celebrating their openings with you next year!

With great thanks and best wishes,
The Team of the Jewish Museum Berlin

Closed But Open

Please note: the permanent exhibition is closed for reconstruction. The two upper levels of the Libeskind Building are therefore currently not accessible.
You can still visit the architectural highlights of the Libeskind Building – the Axes in the basement, the Garden of Exile, and the impressive Voids – as well as the current exhibitions and art installations.
