Jewish Museum in Prague, Prague

(3.8/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Especially the Jewish cemetery has done it to me. Go as early as possible, if it is not so crowded.

  • 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!
