This museum, spread throughout the Jewish quarter (all within easy walking distance) is a good introduction and explanation of Jewish people in Prague. Starting in the 1600s, it gives the discerning reader (I didn't bother with the audio guide) a wealth of information about the...More

I don’t want to be disrespectful, but since the Jewish museum is in such a small area (the ghetto), it is intensely crowded and visitors are simply herded through the locations without the time and space to contemplate the sacredness of the site. We were...More

We were expecting a poignant tour depicting the atrocities of WW2 and all we got were some photos. Very disappointing.

The expositions of the Jewish Museum in Prague are located in four historical synagogues (Maisel Synagogue, Klausen Synagogue with the Ceremonial Hall, Pinkas Synagogue and Spanish Synagogue). The museum tour further includes the Old Jewish Cemetery and Robert Guttmann Gallery. Thank you for your review.

The entire Jewish Quarter is definitely worth your visit. In addition to the museum there are several synagogues and a touching cemetery to wander through. The entire area is a memorial to the thousands of Prague jews who would not see the end of WWII.

Thank you for your review and we´ll be pleased to see you again in the museum. Audioguide JMP does not operate, any complaint should be addressed to: info@audioguide.cz. The reactions of the majority of visitors, however, clearly indicates satisfaction with the service.

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
