We visited in Ocotber, 2016. The museum is acclaimed as an architectural wonder, having been designed by Daniel Libeskind. This may make the museum unique but it also makes it difficult to get around. The floor tilts making the exhibits hard to look into. The interior of he museum is small. Moving through the museum, you jump from historical information... More

This is located in an interesting area of Copenhagen next to the Black Diamond ( National Library). The interior is designed like a ship and the displays are themed mostly covering the 2WW. It was well laid out and worth a visit.

I'm Jewish and looked forward to visiting the Jewish museum. It really wasn't worth 50 DK. There is a short film about the history of the Jews in Denmark that was o.k. but there were only a few other exhibits that were worthwhile such as the Danish Jewish population being transported to Sweden so the Nazis couldn't send them to...

First, you can't find it even though you're in the courtyaard, terrible signage. Then they want $15 p/p for a 30 minute museum! It was absolutely embarrasing. DO NOT GO!

This is a fantastic museum located closely to the national Danish museum. The location is stunning and has gorgeous grounds. It is a very respectful and sensitive museum displaying information about Jewish history and how Denmark and Sweden helped Jewish people during the holocaust. It displays information in a variety of different ways including interactive iPads, artefacts, information boards and... More

This was a bit of a let down of a museum quite pricey and not much to see compared to other Jewish museums that I have visited in Poland and Germany. Two exhibits in different buildings so you need to factor this in if you want to see both. Didn't learn anything new and overall it was over in about... More

The museum is a discussion of the heroic successful effort of Denmark to save its Jews during WW2, when 90% of them were saved. It is a remembrance of that good work. Architecture is innovative shaped like Hebrew letters mitzvoh. However there are antisemitic books and items in the bookstore that need to be removed: ducks that look like Orthodox... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your visit to The Danish Jewish Museum and for your feedback. I'm sorry that you had this experience at our Museum. I can assure you that none of the items for sale at the Museum Shop are antisemitic. On very rare occasion we recieve similar feedback from guests about the rubber duck, but in general... More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
