Jewish were heavily persecuted in the Czech Republic during the Second World War, and they also had a hard life in Prague. They were all confined in the worse district of the city and forced to live in terrible conditions because of their faith. Many Jewish people are still living in this district which has been completely renovated, its sinagogues... More

We traveled with a children's theater group performing a play about the Holocaust. We visited this museum as well as a day trip to Tererinstadt. They were informative and moving. It was an unforgettable experience for all, deepening our understanding of the holocaust.

WIfe and I spent the better part of an afternoon here, reading the local family histories and stories of these wonderful people. Sad and sobering at times, yet shared alot of history artifacts and structures that were untouched in WW2. Worth the stop, The cemetary alone will leave you breathless!!

The Spanish synagogue is really beautiful. Pinkas synagogue is impressive in a sad way. The cemetery is very old and interesting.

We visited this Museum to show our respect for all those innocent people who lost their lives in the most horrible way. It did not make for a cheery day but it is essential that the history of this dreadful event is never forgotten.

Choose from a series of tickets for up to 8 sites . Museums contain a range of exhibits including pictures drawn by children during the holocaust , usual array of religious artefacts but the cemetery , piled higher and higher over the years and the synagogue filled with the names of the dead from 1939 to 1945 are the most...

I bought a ticket to access multiple historical Jewish sites, including the museum. It has an interesting collection of memorabilia - from clothing to alms trays to circumcision equipment. I definitely recommend getting the pass and visiting multiple locations on the tour to get the comprehensive history of the neighborhood.

It's an empty place with its walls covered by the names of the people that are buried in the Jewish cemetery, some kids drawing showing how the Jewish people was left out of the society and how much violence they suffered. The cemetery inside the museum is beautiful but carries a very sad story. It's is high above the streets... More

Spent time walking the streets of Prague and decided to visit the Jewish Museum. Was not sure what to expect, read some previous reviews. Well worth the visit and make sure you get a headset there is a lot of information given out throughout the tour that you will miss without it.

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.
