Although comparatively new the Jewish Museum in Lindenstrasse has already obtained an international reputation for its emphatic architecture and unique exhibitions that bring history alive. The bulk of the museum is placed in a windowless and doorless steel-clad, silver building, designed by Daniel Libeskind, sited alongside the yellow Baroque edifice of the Berlin Museum. Visitors admission to the Jewish Museum is through the Berlin Museum to discover the exhibition rooms, which are clustered around a main axis void, designed to signify the empty and invisible aspects of Jewish history.
