Jewish Museum in Prague, Prague

(2,600+ reviews on the web)
History Museum Museum
Small but rich in cultural attractions, Jewish Museum in Prague counts among Europe's best-preserved ghettos. Paradoxically, Hitler's intent to create an "exotic museum of an extinct race" here served to ensure the small enclave's continued existence through the destruction of World War II. Within the confines of the atmospheric neighborhood, situated within the old town, you can explore six historical synagogues and a medieval cemetery, one of the oldest and largest surviving Jewish graveyards in the world. Start your tour at the compact quarter's 13th-century Gothic synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe and a rumored resting place of Jewish folklore's famous Golem.

  • Worth the money (500czk) to see everything. The altneushul (old new synagogue) puts the price from 330 to 500 and probably wouldn't be worth it for people who aren't very interested as the building is a working synagogue with no exhibitions and is therefore quite simple inside. However for 170czk more it would be worth it for anyone interested in the 14th century building, or for visiting Jews who would like to see what has been a massively important building in the faith. There is no access to the women's part of the synagogue so you can only access the main room and the hallway.
  • A great way to look back in time while visiting the castle. It can be a bit crowded and the walkways are thin, but well worth a visit.
  • very interesting, pretty detailled history of the jewish life in prague
  • 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 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!
