I had a hard time getting a handle on Vienna, finding it a proper, distant place filled with uptight, cold people. Throughout the town, at the doorways of apartments and building, you will see small copper plaques with names and dates In the 1940s. These...More

A very interesting place in the core of Vienna, looking at the very long history of Jews in the city. Sobering and uplifting at the same time

There are 2 Jewish museums in the centre quite close to each other so easy to visit both in an afternoon. They are not big museums so you can see everything in an hour or two. Much of the material refers to the social side...More

The museum gives a backdrop of Jewish life in Vienna up to the Anschluss and Holocaust and is located on several floors. It is easy to get round and follow the way it has been curated which adds I think to the interest of the...More

It was an interesting museum, and I’m glad we went. We almost missed the upstairs until we inquired. I especially enjoyed the first floor with multi-media presentations. It was even more than we could take in at the end of our day so I wished...More

Every time I visit, I am transported to an interesting theme. This time, for example, on salons and marriages of convenience. The story of the jews is also well described. Both museums are worthwhile.

In many ways I preferred the smaller exhibit in the Judenplatz adjacent to the Shoa Memorial. The stories of Jewish women who had been married to unselfish men still resonates with me. (Marriages of Convenience in Exile). Some maintained no contact with their new husband,...More

Two Jewish museums in Vienna - about 10 minutes walk apart inside Ringstrasse - are both worth your time to visit. Austria has never treated its Jewish population well. Learn more here.

We visited both museums for the combined price of €12 each. The man on the desk at the smaller museum was particularly helpful. It is worth visiting both museums as they have different things to offer. We were particularly impressed with the artefacts on the...More
