This museum is small, but beautifully designed. The "uncomfortable" feeling that you experience the museum is emblematic of the Jew's journey in Denmark. This museum is impactful in design.

Very interesting to see the exhibits and video - to learn more about the history of DK and how they welcomed Jewish immigrants to the country. Certainly made me think how history repeats itself so often. Worth visiting. We were there for around 90 minutes.

Worth a trip to learn the history and unique experience of Danish Jewry, but does not require a lot of time.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
