Designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, the museum's zinc-paneled exterior makes it one of Berlin's most striking landmarks. 

Inside, visitors will find a wide range of historical artifacts and donated collections that illustrate the long history and struggle of Jewish Germans, from the Middle Ages to the present. 

Exhibits include artwork, religious objects, and 24,000 photographs that have been preserved and recovered.

 The museum is also home to an extensive library and archives at the Academy of the Jewish Museum Berlin, where there are frequent educational programs. 

Museum galleries include sections dedicated to Hanukkah, anti-semitism, Middle East conflict, the history and culture of Jerusalem, and the life of Munich rabbi Leo Baerwald.
