  • 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
  • Not worth the money and time. The medieval ruins are cool, but that's about it. Ten minutes to see the whole thing.
  • The environment of the square is very beautiful and the message of the Jewish Holocaust memorial is something to never forget.
