Danish Jewish Museum preserves the memory of Danish Jews who were saved by the Danes from Nazi persecution in 1943. Discover documents and artifacts including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, films, and books that shed light on significant aspects of Jewish life in Denmark. World-famous architect Daniel Libeskind designed the museum almost like a labyrinth. Walk over its slanted floors and through its fractured passageways and winding corridors, which form the letters for the Hebrew word mitzvah, meaning "good deed." According to Libeskind, the interior provides a contextual frame for the exhibit. A visit to Danish Jewish Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Copenhagen day trip planning tool to plot your vacation.

The Jewish Museum, with its stunning architecture, is worth a visit. The museum is small but tells in an inspiring way the life of the Danish Jews through the last centuries. more »
Quite hidden away but a small museum with a fascinating insight into the Jewish culture in Denmark and their history. Also a very interesting bit during the Nazi occupation more »
Beautiful architecture and precious memories of the Danish Jewish people. I was so happy that i could look around the space on Saturday morning.
A look back at was once a large vibrant community until the Second World War. This is the Ashkenazi version of the Esnoga. Very nice kosher ingredients menu. No supervision.
