The basics

The museum is located in Hackesche Höfe, a complex of eight courtyards in the former Jewish neighborhood of Scheunenviertel. The area often features on tours covering World War II and Berlin’s Jewish history, and both private car and walking tours may include the Otto Weidt Museum in combination with other important sites such as the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, the Topography of Terror, and the New Synagogue.

During your visit to the museum, you will see Otto Weidt’s Workshop for the Blind, one of the places where the factory owner hid his staff and their families, as well as letters, photographs, and other personal documentation.

When to get there

The museum is typically open Mondays through Fridays. There can sometimes be school visits and group tours, so to avoid the biggest crowds, it may be a good idea to visit after 3pm (but before 6pm, which is when the museum usually closes).
