The permanent exhibition takes you through 2000 years of German-Jewish history in 14 steps. The museum always holds topical special exhibitions. Also the the building itself is quite striking and impressive with its architectural design. Already before the museum opened its doors to the public in 2001, the still empty newly constructed building by Daniel Libeskind attracted spectators and is widely regarded as one of Germany’s most spectular museum building with its outstanding forms. You can still feel this attraction is the 2007 addition of an atrium.
