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.

  • בית הכנסת מדהים ביופיו, ומרשה לעצמו להוריד קצת מהצניעות המקובלת בעולם היהודי. הקירות מקושטים בצורה מהפנטת והעוגבים גדולים ומרשימים. חובה לבקר! 
  • Lots of gold leaf adorning the place but very little information to give any real atmosphe. Stained glass style was somewhat different if you are into that sort of thing but otherwise a little bland. 
  • This is the most beautiful synagogue I've ever seen. Great part of the Jewish Ghetto tour with audio guide. Wonderful little museum of what Jews endured. Recommend highly. 
  • Wonderful Museum that provides a fascinating tour in the Jewish quarter Highly recommended!
  • Great tour and a stunning building, stories of those who suffered but stood their ground
  • Meaningful complex of buildings and an old cemetery in the heart of Prague. The first building contains a simple, yet vast memorial to those sent to concentrations camps. The names are listed by town and family. All the walls are basically covered by names. Upstairs there is some art by young occupants of said camps. The old Jewish cemetery is next door. The crowded state, symbols and names all add to the meaning. You can find a familiar last name by not even looking too hard. The other buildings are within easy walking distance. The complex is closed on Saturdays and Jewish holidays.
  • Recommend the audioguide for sure. Great experience here!
