Jewish Museum in Prague, Prague

(4.3/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Colorful stained glass and elaborate Oriental motifs decorate the interior of Jewish Museum in Prague, the newest of the six Jewish synagogues in Prague. Built in the second half of the 19th century and considered the crown jewel of the city's Jewish quarter, the building is an outstanding example of the Moorish Revival architectural style. A pair of domed turrets tops the central section of the building's tripartite facade, making this one of the most recognizable structures in the city. Visit the upper-floor prayer hall to see an exhibit narrating the history of Prague's Jewish community, and containing thousands of items representing the work of many generations of goldsmiths from Bohemia and Moravia. Our Prague itinerary builder makes visiting Jewish Museum in Prague and other Prague attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • An ornate interior and interesting exhibition over two floors on Jewish history in the Czech Republic. Souvenir shop too. 
  • This is the most beautiful of the synagogues of the Jewish District. If you don't have time to visit the other synagogues, be sure to visit at least that.

  • Place was okay but little bit dull. The flow of story line was not in a chronological basis. Little bit of stories here and there with little coherence.
  • A lot of knowledge. Old graveyard is probably most stunning.
  • A very pretty room and very nicely decorated, and upstairs a lot of interesting items of the second world war and nazi occupation... If you like this period or are interested in history, go for it!
  • What little is left of the Prague ghetto is quickly turned back to life in this amazing collection.
  • Wonderful Museum that provides a fascinating tour in the Jewish quarter Highly recommended!
