Jüdisches Museum

Maybe it goes without saying but the Jewish museum is pretty intense. You enter into a basement with a long slightly rising corridor. Along this corridor are two others that intersect at odd angles creating a path with two extra axes. Along the corridor are displays with belongings of Jews that were murdered at concentration camps. At the end of two of the corridors are large voluminous void rooms; one of them pictured below has 10 thousand screaming metal faces. Once you leave the basement level, the two floors that comprise the permanent collection detail Jewish customs and history and are much less depressing.
