A bit disappointed that major parts of the museum were closed while we were there. The museum looks normal from the front but it actually is an architectural masterpiece. You will understand once you are inside. This is the largest Jewish Museum in Europe. The "Garden of exile" with it's tilted foundation and 49 tall pillars is something to see and experience. Walking through it will make you disoriented and confused. Similarly, the "Holocaust tower" will bring you to the world of loneliness and fear. This 24 meter tall empty concrere silo has no heating and cooling, and has only a small slit on the roof for light to come in.
