Schools - Jewish Museum Berlin


As a museum and an educational institution, we see the relaying of German-Jewish history to pupils of all ages and from all types of school as an important task. Our extensive educational program is diverse, ranging from interactive tours through the permanent and temporary exhibitions to activity-based workshops lasting several hours. Over 50,000 school pupils enjoy our program each year and experience that German-Jewish history and culture can provide interesting insight into their own environment.

You will find our program for school pupils on this page and as a teacher can download teaching aids and worksheets.


These worksheets enable school pupils to independently explore specific themes in the permanent exhibition of the Jewish Museum Berlin. They therefore make acquiring a well-founded, basic understanding of German-Jewish history possible through inquiring learning.

The activity-based visit to the Museum provides school pupils with the opportunity to establish connections between the content of the exhibition and their own reality, to identify with the topic in hand, and to heighten their awareness of societal and historical-political issues.

The handouts provide detailed information for teachers on the segment in question, task suggestions for pupils during their visit to the Museum, and potential educational objectives. We are grateful for any feedback as this enables us to extend our program and adapt it to address our visitors' needs. We wish teachers and pupils much fun exploring our manifold themes and look forward to welcoming you at the Museum!

Please note that the worksheets are only available in German.
