worth the visit - insightful about the history.

A quick visit but well worth it - a lot of history presented in a very accessible manner. The architecture of the building / exhibit was interesting as well.

Both the permanent exibition and the temporary one are worth seeing. The inside of the museum was designed by the same architect that designed the ground zero memorial in New York.

Remarkable architect Daniel Liebskind has again created a space that tells a story of people, experiences through the use of space, texture, and the incredible way the floor moves under your feet. It is a metaphor for so many travels of Jews. Bravo to the Danes for their commitment to saving Jews and history of this group in this Scandinavian... More

I wish I could give a more positive review, but the angled flooring and walls made me nauseous. I had the Copenhagen card so both the permanent and temporary exhibits were included. The temporary exhibit was excellent and very emotional. Staff was excellent.

Because we were specifically looking for Holocaust info, I didn't spend a lot of time at the other exhibits. But the ones I focused on we're incredibly well done. Someone out some serious time into the planning of this place! The temporary exhibit that's there right now about the Danish people coming home after the Holocaust is superb!

This museum chronicles the tremendous efforts that the Danish people achieved in saving their entire Jewish population from the Nazi killers and invaders. It is a fascinating story and one that truly demonstrates the humanitarianism of the Danish people. A must see for every Jewish tourist.

This is a gem. Designed by the Danish architect that created the new world trade center in NYC it is unique with the rooms actually inside the hebrew letters for mitzva. We found the displays to be moving and inspirational. We didn't have any problem locating the museum since we had a knowledgeable cab driver.

This museum was difficult for me to find. It is installed in the carriage house of the palace and they are not allowed to put up signs. When the maps I had failed, I resorted to asking local passers-by for help. Once I found it, I was so glad to have perservered! The installation itslef is well worth the visit... More

This museum is hard to find. However it is in the old library so if you ask for that maybe you could find it easier. One of the workers asked if we had a hard time finding it. It is in a court yard down a small alley type of street across from the "Black Diamond" or new library. The... More

Though it is difficult to locate without assistance, it's worth the effort. Very interesting story about how the Danish people helped save the Jews, and about how the majority of them moved away to Sweden to flee the Nazis. Definitely worth a visit. Allow a couple of hours to see everything, including the before and after story.
