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.

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!

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...More

This little museum located on Slotsholmen, where you also find the danish parliament and numerous other museums. The jewish museum was designed Daniel Libeskind following the Mitzvah-concept, and has national recognition as a museum of jewish cultural history in Denmark.

Is the Jewish Museum accessible for a person in a power (electric) wheelchair? The description of slanted and wavy floors makes me a little concerned. Are there any stairs or steps inside or at the entrance?
