This museum is small but fascinating. The staff are the most helpful and friendly we encountered and even security were really polite. The food is delicious and it’s good value. Such a lovely place to spend the morning.

With anti-semitism being so much in the news, we went to learn more about Jewish life. The museum has plenty of artifacts, but (for example) a lot of synagogue gold and silverware did little to educate us. The captions to the display cases were particularly...More

I really enjoyed this small museum in Camden. It was nice that they had student-priced tickets for school/college students! They have the museum broken down into an artifacts room sorted by certain aspects of the Jewish tradition, and then a room where they take you...More

Best tour company for guided Jewish Museum (1 Replies)
Is there a particular tour company which stands out as being the best for this tour? Would rather go with a guide than just wander by ourselves aimlessly.

WWII sites grouped together (6 Replies)
We are 2 adults (49, 50) and 5 young adults (18-24). Thinking of doing the bike tour (Fat Tire one) then seeing these sites: Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie, Wall museum, Brandenburg Gate, German History Museum, Jewish Museum and Underground Bunker Tour - is this do-able all in one day?

Response fromLynda|
You are kidding? Unless you are going to gallop through those museums (in which case what's the point in going) you couldn't do them all in one day even without the Fat Bike Tour. You'd have to allow two hour minimum per museum I'd reckon to be sensible, and I think the bunker tour is similar length and a different part of town. And I don't think your brain would cope either as, with the exception of the DDR-Museum which is noted for being interrtactive and entertaining as well as...More
