The Jewish Museum in Prague

  • Map

Prague’s Jewish Museum, one of the oldest and continuously existing Jewish museums in the world, was founded in 1906. The mission of the museum is to document the history, traditions and customs of the Jewish population in Bohemia and preserve valuable artefacts from the Prague synagogues that were destroyed during the liquidation of the Prague ghetto. In addition to the permanent exhibitions, some of the buildings also hold concerts and temporary exhibitions.

The extensive collection of Judaica, including 40,000 artefacts, 100,000 books, and extensive archives of Jewish communities, is unique not only for its size, but especially the fact that they come from one coherent territory - from Bohemia and Moravia. As a whole, it gives a complete picture of the life and history of Jews in this region. The museum is housed in Prague's synagogues and other Jewish monuments.
