We took a private tour around Prague’s Jewish Quarter with the fantastic Anna Kristyna Sion in February 2015. We booked via Pavel Batel on the Terezin Private Tours website and asked after Anna specifically, because of the excellent Tripadvisor reviews we had read about her. Anna is a young, passionate guide and student, with extensive knowledge of Czech Jewish History.... More

I went there in dec. 2011 (not possible to fill in in this review). Very moving museum. You see pictures of children changing by the years of the war 40-45. First happy and then as time goes by, and hate towards Jewisch people increased, the sketches from children more dark. Very moving and emotional to see.

Worth a visit - in truth, I was not really interested in the really early stuff but the 20th century was obviously of great interest. The museum ticket gave access to all parts of the Jewish quarter - If I were to choose, the memorial to those lost in 1939-1945, the old Jewish cemetery and the Spanish Synagogue were the... More

Nicely done ....which is very small yet you just know more after this visit. Take your time and well display old artifacts. There is nothing you do not like about this museum.

Almost each couple from our group was hiring different companies to tour Prague, Concentration camp and Jewish Quarter. It seams we were the most lucky ones because we didn't follow commercial boards on the walls of synagogues but rather search the TripAdvisor! For tour of Prague we took Viator.It was ok. For visit of Terezin we found Mr. Batel and... More

Enjoyed might not be the word i'd use as it is after all multiple walls of remembrance in the museum. I was certainly impressed by the number of names, and dates on the walls. It did bring tears to my eyes to think of it. And I understand the respect needed and thus the no-picture policy. But when we move... More

the graveyard is where you will get the best atmosphere and emotional connection with the formerly strong jewish community in czech republic, the spanish synagogue has a beautiful interior and there is one display of kids drawings from the concentration camps. Otherwise sad to say the glass cases are unimaginatively presented and do little to convey the enormity of the... More

...as a Jew, I have mixed feelings about the "selling" of a vanished community. We didn't go in any of the synagogues so I can't judge the interiors and exhibitions, but much of the external architecture is very impressive.

Trying to visit jewish cemetry was linked to a complete tour what I found to be a disadvantage. Not possible to enter just for some quiet moments.
