Explore one of the most recognized Jewish museums in the world.


Come and explore the most visited museum in the Czech Republic. The Prague Jewish Museum brings in 500, 000 - 600, 000 patrons each year.

On this tour, we will visit different synagogues and the Old Jewish Cemetery. Learn about the 600 year confinement of Jews and study their traditions. Find out why Prague is the only city in Europe which refused to let go of its Jewish ancestry during World War II.

On this three hour tour, we will explore items from synagogues which have been demolished as a direct consequence of the former Jewish ghetto's clearance. We'll take a look at books and archived documents which spanned across different Jewish communities living in Prague during the Second World War.

Itinerary

During 3 hours you will learn about the fate of the Jews in the Czech lands which constitutes a significant part of Czech national history and represents an important chapter in the history of the Jewish people in the Diaspora. We will visit interiors of the Jewish Museum established in 1906, one of the oldest Jewish museums in Europe. At the core of its collection are items from synagogues that had been demolished as a result of the clearance of the Prague Jewish ghetto as well as liturgical objects, books and archival documents from the defunct Jewish communities for the duration of the WWII.
Interiors to visit: Pinkas Syngogue, Spanish Synagogue, Old-New Synagogue (the oldest active in Europe), Klausen Synagogue, Old Jewish Cemetery, Ceremonial Hall and Maisel Synagogue.
