Jewish Museum Berlin

The Jewish Museum Berlin opened in September 2001. The idea to establish a Jewish Museum was voiced in 1971, the year in which Berlin’s Jewish community commemorated its 300th anniversary. The Jewish Museum Berlin is one of Germany’s most visited museums. Offering guided tours, temporary exhibitions, and a diverse calendar of events including scientific symposia, concerts, talks, workshops for kids and teens to name but a few, the museum has secured its reputation as a lively center for Jewish history and culture. The acquisition of the Judaica Collection laid the foundation for the Berlin Museum’s collection of ceremonial objects. Outstanding individual pieces were added, such as the Hanukkah lamp of George Wilhelm Marggraff from 1776. Family documents and everyday objects soon broadened the spectrum of the collection.
