From the original suggestion of the idea in 1928, the creation of a Jewish museum in Munich took more than 75 years to become a reality. This striking modern building, constructed along with the adjacent synagogue and community center, opened in 2007 and displays a variety of exhibits about Jewish culture. The history of Munich as it concerns the Jews is explored on all three floors; other exhibits give background on the Diaspora and illuminate Jewish traditions, religious holidays, and rites of passage, from circumcision to bar mitzvahs and funerals.
