The airport-style security and the confiscation of items such as pocket knives can be unnerving for the visitor. Inside there is little of interest other than a lame exhibition on the history. Photography is forbidden though this is not made clear, at least to English speakers. Having taken an innocuous snap in the lobby this visitor was grabbed by security... More

There is really no synagogue here as it has never been rebuilt inside. The view from the magnificent dome was very poor. Staff were less than friendly.It is better to go to the Judisches Museum, which is excellent for young people.

I like artifacts, not photos and if it has to be phitis, then I prefer photos of the original artifacts. I especially don't like items that were made by kids in a kindergarten class a few years ago - too recent for my liking. I had hoped the dome view would salvage the visit but nope, probably more disappointing than... More

The main hall of worship was destroyed in WWII. What remained was torn down in the 1950s. So what you can see is essentially the ante-rooms and the dome. Very little original detail remains. The dome (extra charge) is also a disappointment. It isn't high enough above the surrounding buildings to get a good skyline view. They don't even let... More

Don't go there. Not so much to see. We've been inside for like 5 minutes. You have to pay extra for the exhibitions. On the outside it'a beautiful, but we didn't like the inside that much.

Fascinating facade but not much of a museum overall. The walk to the dome offers beautiful views of Berlin's landmark from another vantage point.

If you have plenty of time in Berlin and want to do something for about 30-45 minutes, you might want to consider visiting here. But definitely do not pay extra to go up into the dome, there is NO view (the surrounding buildings are the same height or higher). The permanent exhibit is fairly interesting, but small. Do yourself the... More

We waited 20 minutes to get in even though the line up was small. The security staff were exceptionally rude, shouting at people in bad English and German which most tourists could not understand. There is no need for this kind of security in Berlin. You would think they were protecting diamonds. When you get in there, after paying €3,... More

Lets start from the entrance, I've been in a lot of museums in Berlin. Never had that kind of a security check. 3€ for the permanent exhibition - which is like...3 rooms of nothing at all. 2€ for the dome - you see rooftops, and the climb there is dangerous. 3€ for the not so permanent exhibition 3€ for an...
