The Jewish Museum Berlin is reinventing itself

Up until 2019 we will be creating both a new permanent exhibition and a children's museum. The two upper levels of the Libeskind Building are therefore currently not accessible.

Furthermore, you can 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.
