  • Excellent example of locally informed history, providing the Jewish experience from a nuanced perspective in Vienna. Appreciated localizing history to the city, but also the loss experienced. Their examples of Austrian-Jewish artifacts is well-put.
  • Jewish history should be known and studied by anyone. Fascinating to see the struggle of these people, hopefully we can avoid to repeat the same mistakes In the future with other races.
  • You must go to the smaller location where they exposed the walls and bimah of the medieval synagogue.
  • The museum is an important part of keeping the history of Jewish Vienna from becoming lost. The special exhibit was, when I went, an excellent show of Jewish women artists. The permanent collection, though, is idiosyncraticly curated. It can be hard to gather a general overview of Jewish life--or the laws that are the reason there often wasn't much of one--from even a careful viewing.
  • Nice museum, gives a good overview, although i would have appreciated a bit more detailed installations

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
