The Jewish Museum Berlin (Juedisches Museum Berlin) is a museum in Berlin covering two millennia of German Jewish history.; The Jewish Museum in Berlin was originally founded on Oranienburger Straße in 1933. It was closed in 1938 by the Nazi regime. The idea to revive the museum was first voiced in 1971, and an "Association for a Jewish Museum" was founded in 1975. A Jewish department of the Berlin Museum was opened after the Berlin Museum first displayed an exhibition on Jewish history in Berlin in 1978. In 1999 the Jewish Museum Berlin was granted status as an independent institution. A building by Daniel Libeskind was finished in 1999 and officially opened in 2001.; The director of the museum is Professor W. Michael Blumenthal, who is originally from Berlin and was US Secretary of the Treasury under President Jimmy Carter.

It was originally owned by the church but later acquired by the Button family in the 16th century. The name was changed to Dyffryn St. Thomas when the estate was sold to Thomas Pryce, who built the first building to be known as Dyffryn House.; John Cory bought the estate in 1891 and two years later he built the present manor house. He commissioned Thomas Mawson to landscape the gardens around it. After Cory's death in 1910, his son Reginald, a keen horticulturalist, developed the gardens and arboretum particularly through his joint sponsorship of several plant-hunting expeditions. After Reginald Cory's death in 1934, the estate was passed to his daughter Florence who died two years later. Sir Cennydd Traherne then bought it, and leased it in 1939 to Glamorgan County Council on a 999-year lease. ; The Grade I listed gardens are being restored with grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund. ; ;
