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...

The façade of the building is beautiful, but the museum is poor and very expensive if you know what they offer. They even charge the garderobe and it is obligatory to leave your things in there! The service is terrible! They left us waiting for 45 minutes because the POSTNET was not working without offering a better solution to get... More

We found the initial approach rather off-putting but that did not inhibit us, we happily purchased tickets and were admitted by an attendant. However after 5 minutes an official arrived demanding we "check" our backpack - no one else had even mentioned this.. We had already been through security scanners, but, wanting to do the right thing, we found the... More

Thought this would be an interesting place to visit, and to get the view from the dome. On arrival the place looked a little impenetrable with police guarding outside and airline style security to enter. We decided in the end that maybe the police were there to warn people off entering! Off to buy tickets for a family of 4... More

I thought "new" meant recently built, but it refers to newly-built in the 18th century. Interesting to see the size of the former synagogue (heavily damaged during the bombings) and how Berlin had almost 1/3 of all German Jews living there.

One of the most beautiful building in Berlin, but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend a visit inside. The permanent exhibition is quite small, and while you can read/see some interesting details on the Jewish community before, during and after the holocaust, most items just aren't that interesting (and that's coming from someone who really values the Jewish viewpoint and wants to...

The facace of this building was restored, but the remainder of the building was torn down during the days of the old East German government. What is left is beautiful, but it is sad that a building that survived the pogroms and the war, albeit very damaged, was lost. Entering the building itself is off-putting as you have to pass... More

A nice facade, but the inside isn't really that interesting, unless you would like to know everything about the building of the synagogue and the jewish rites and traditions in this building... It is three euro to enter the synagogue and for every additional exhibition or visit of the dome, there is an additional fee. The inside is definitely not... More
