This museum and the area around it was interesting because of the history of the people who lived here in their period of time, and the construction of the buildings of that era in history.

This museum contains a lot of information about Jewish members of the community prior to and after WWIl. Well worth stopping in. The cost of admission is only a couple of dollars (maybe $3).

I booked a tour with insight, so my experience could be enhanced by the guide's excellent explanations. I think it would be 4 stars without her

As you may well know, Prague suffered at the hands of a Nazi occupation during World War Two. Like many Eastern European cities, there was a bustling Jewish community that came to a very abrupt end. The Jewsish museum Iain fact several distinct buildings spread...More

I lived right by the Jewish museum for six years and went there three times in total, and the second two times I wish I'd saved my money and gone to one of the other sites, like Terezin, Lidice, or Lety, with my guests and...More

Spent a full day walking around the old ghetto area which was fascinating and learnt a lot. I did feel that there weren't as many explanations or guides as there shule have been. We were very fortunate to be greeted by a very special gentleman...More

Very crowded, but very moving and worthwhile. Not particularly expensive. Buy your tickets from the ticket office around the block, not from the museum box office itself---same price, much shorter lines.

The whole museum was like a history visit but I found it to be very sad to know just what was done to the Jews in the Second World War the whole time spent their was well worth while & extremely thought provoking.

Myself and my friends came here in Prague and I think the main reason we lacked enthusiasm and interest is because we knew little about the history of it all. Upon booking this you can get guided tours, which I'm sure would make it more...More

You walk from synagogue to synagogue in the old Jewish Quarter getting to see the different interiors. Each functions as a different museum. The cemetery is incredible and memorable. Can do self guided or do one of the official tours. Ticket is good for 1...More

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

I came to Prague specifically to pray by the grave of the Maharal MiPrague located in the Old Jewish cemetery. In order to get to the grave of the Maharal I had to pay 300CZK. This allows me access to the museum and several Jewish Synagogues which I had no interest in visiting again. I come to Prague one a year and all I wanted to do is to pray by the kever of the Maharal. No other Jewish community in the world charges Jewish people (non tourists) to pray by the graves of our ancestors!! Why is the Prague Jewish community the exception?

If all you want to do there is pray at the kever, I believe that you can visit the Kehilla offices (a block or two away) during business hours, and explain the situation. In such a case you can get in for free. BTW, this is... More
