The Jewish Museum in Munich

Today I went to see the Jewish Museum. Next to the Ohel-Jakob-Synagogue and the Jewish Community Center it's the third building on St.Jakobs-Platz, designed ba architects Wandel Hoefer Lorch.

The architecture reminded me a lot of the Kolumba museum in Cologne.

From the outside the cube looks pretty unspectacular but from the inside it's amazing. The ground floor is glazed on all four sides and houses the information desk, a shop and a cafe.

The basement, the 1st and 2nd floor house a permanent exhibition about Jewish life in Munich, a library and changing exhibitions. Right now that is: A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew by Eran Shakine.

How very current: M. C. & J. looking for a different method of communication. 

A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew searching for love.

A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew trying to figure out God's plan.

My favorite: Muslim, Christian and Jew didn't realize happiness was following them for some time now.
