  • Very small, yet remember this is only half the museum complex. The other half is over by the church. Get the Vienna Pass to go into this one. The excavation is amazing.
  • The medieval synagogue excavation is a treat. The Simon Weisenthal exhibition was worth the entrance fee alone.
  • Atmosphere is authentic, great way to send the message of the Holocaust, never forget

  • An excellent Museum, although relatively small. Testifies to the difficult history of Austrian Jews, as well as about the history of the Jewish people in General. Very interesting, touching, and worth the visit!
