Jewish Museum in Prague, Prague

#2 of 189 in Museums in Czech Republic
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.

  • a great place to visit for historic and rare antiquities. It can easily be seen in under half an hour and is close to many other attractions.  more »
  • Rainy day, visited the cemetery of Prague, the novel is vaguely thought and felt the image was intact. The old town and is a distinct relaxing atmosphere, so please be sure to visit. The entrance from the Franz Kafka was born, meaning I had to find a place I've been.

  • The visit was actually planned not at all, but to visit the old Jewish cemetery, we have purchased a combination ticket for 330 kronor and seen thus all synagogues, museums and the cemetery except synagogue, for which one probably needs an another (own) ticket the star Nova. Because the most synagogues are more museums is informed very much. Therefore, it takes half a day to see everything. For the cemetery you have to put on a Kippah, which exist for a donation to the Fund. However, that is so easy that it falls down at the slightest puff of wind. Without further ADO, we have a judge Kippah worried that firmly sat and looked even better especially!

  • 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.
  • very interesting, pretty detailled history of the jewish life in prague
  • 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.
  • 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!

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
