  • The ceremonial hall of the Prague Jewish Funeral Society is now used as an exhibition for the Jewish Museum in Prague. The building is a fine example of the Romanesque style. In 1997, the State Hall.....  more »

  • If you are a Jew like me and know at least basic customs and traditions (and history of European Jews too) then all displayed in synagogues and ceremonial hall won't be so interesting , although I do....  more »

  • The story of the Jewish quarter history is great, but a museum with just some artifacts, a couple of empty synagogues and the beautiful, but 'empty' cemetery don't bring the vivid past alive. The entrance fees are steep and you'll visit a hollow shell of what the quarter used to be. Beautiful, yes. But it's just bricks and stones you'll discover.
  • This is a stunning gem you’ll have to visit. I’d suggest you spend more time in this glittering location and take in the grandeur it has to offer. While you’re at it, bring along a wide lens to capture the beautiful interior.
  • Not the most extravagant place, however, we owe it to our jewish brothers and sisters to remember their struggles and to never allow such horrible atrocities to happen again. Please go and support this museum.
  • Expensive for a pretty empty shell. If you compare it to other experiences the price is too high.
  • The selection of sights and museums were lacking compared to the steep asking price. The synagoges were pretty, but honestly not all that impressive and quite modest, while the exhibitions seemed focused more on the religion itself and on the culture than on its history, which was disappointing to me, but might appeal to others. To be fair, one of the synagoges focused on jews in prague, but the timeline was very narrow. An focused mostly on a few hundred years, and hardly scratched the surface. The cemetery was probably the best experience, but you'd have to consider the amount of money you are throwing at it, and if i could go back in time with the knowledge i have of the Jewish museum now, i wouldn't bother with it, to be honest. The exhibitions range from "rustic" to modern, some being better and more informative than others, but overall, it think the asking price is probably twice as much as it has any right to be.
