About this app

Actress Sandra Hüller and many other voices guide you through the exhibitions of the JMB. Architect Daniel Libeskind talks about the ideas behind his design for the spectacular museum building. Personal stories and interviews, images, videos and games introduce you to the highlights and hidden gems of the exhibitions and provide a wide range of views on Jewish life in Germany, both present and past.

Choose one of the curated tours to see the highlights of the museum. The museum’s special architecture is presented in a separate tour. Prefer to find things out for yourself? Simply key in the numbers to make your own choice and decide what to see next - an interactive map provides orientation.

Accessibility is important to us. The app can be used with a screen reader to support visitors who are blind or have limited vision; audio descriptions and tactile instructions support your barrier-free visit to the museum. Visitors with hearing impairments are offered a tour with 20 videos in German Sign Language and all audio content has read-along texts. The JMB app also offers 50 audio files in Leichte Sprache (German plain language) and can be used in a simplified operating mode.

The app is quite buggy. The player's rewind function didn't work for me. Minimizing the app stops and ruins the entire track. Pictures weren't downloaded many times

This app simply does not work with Bluetooth headphones - even though it recommends using the headphones un the first place. Worse, it gets my phone into a state where the headphones no longer work at all, for calls or apps. The only way to recover is to completely turn off and turn on the phone. Very aggravating and unprofessional.
