This museum is one of several buildings you can see in the Jewish quarter. It has the names of all Holocaust victims on the walls and outside is an old cemetery. It's a moving place and also has lot of interesting historical information at the other sites nearby. the Spanish synagogue is worth visiting too.

It was an interesting experience walking through the old cemetery. We've followed a private guided tour and managed to get a deeper insight into the history. It's worth the visit, especially as it comes as part of the Prague card.

We stumbled upon the entrance to the "museum" while simply walking in the direction of the Jewish Quarter. This isn't a typical museum. It includes several synagogues, a fascinating ancient cemetery, and a ceremonial hall. All were once part of a thriving Jewish community in Prague, at one time a walled ghetto completely surrounded by Old Town, which was demolished... More

I visited the Ceremonial Hall, the old cemetery and Pinkas Synagogue where the walls are covered with the names of 80,000 Jews from Prague who died. There was also an exhibit in the synagogue with artwork of children who were sent to Terezin. It was a very sad and sobering experience.

Worth a visit. The Jewish museum takes place in a number of different buildings. Short distant walk between each and included on one ticket.

Just a few buildings in the original Jewish quarter take part in telling the story of the community. The moving Pinkas Synagogue with the Terezinstat children's artwork, the unique Jewish Cemetery, the ornate Sefardic Synagogue, the attic where the Golem was reputed to be walled up...a special place.

The Jews have a deep and interesting history in Prague and you can easily learn quite bit with a visit to the Jewish Museum. Be sure to buy a ticket that lets you follow the circuit of buildings so you don't wind up paying individually.

Staying in Josefov

Neighbourhood Profile
Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighbourhood centered around Široká street is completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small enough that a person could touch the houses on both sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this neighbourhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
