Founded in 1906, the Jewish Museum in Prague is consistently the most visited museum in the whole of the Czech Republic. Its sites are located in the preserved area of the former Jewish Town in the historic centre of Prague, which is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Touring the museum’s historic synagogues, the Ceremonial Hall and the Old Jewish Cemetery provides a unique cultural experience for visitors – one of the greatest on offer in the Czech capital.

The Jewish Museum in Prague is the largest museum of its kind in Europe. It has one of the largest collections of Judaica in the world, with as many as 40,000 items and 100,000 books. In addition to its permanent exhibitions, the museum focuses on the past and present, culture and education of the Jewish culture in the Czech Republic in many other ways – paying special attention to the organizing of cultural and educational programmes for the general public. Research work also forms a key part of the museum’s activities. 

The museum is easy to access by public transport – it is near Staroměstská Station (Metro A, Tram 17 or 18, Bus 207). All the sites are within easy walking distance of each other.

With the PRAGUE CITY PASS you can visit all the sites that are included in the museum tour – Maisel Synagogue, Spanish Synagogue, Klausen Synagogue, Pinkas Synagogue, the Ceremonial Hall and the Old Jewish Cemetery.
