The Jewish Museum is located near Marienplatz and belongs to the Jewish Centre at St.-Jakobs-Platz in Munich, along with the synagogue and the Jewish Community.
The front of the museum is formed by a foyer that is glazed all around and thus transparent, thus presenting itself to the outside as a public space. Here you will find the information area with cash desk, the museum bookshop and a café. On the first and second floors there are two temporary exhibition areas as well as study and learning areas.
The basement houses the permanent exhibition of the Jewish Museum. "Stimmen_Orte_Zeiten" focuses on the Jewish history and culture of Munich. Contemporary witnesses have their say, as do pictures and objects of Jewish Munich. The focus is also on the Jewish religion. Jewish annual festivals and transition rituals are explained and presented.
