Most of us remember the cemetery as the most intense part of the Jewish Museum! And perhaps it is! But this time around, I understood way better what was the Jewish museum, and it is not only the cemetery, the spaces surrounding or the Temple... it is also the buildings that surround all this, the streets, the people! It is... More

We were blown away by the history and walking around the cemetery gardens was very moving. Go and see for yourself. I recommend it to any one.

A very sombre place to visit. Really hits how easy how the Jewish people were treated. And just how many lost their lives.

Both, the Jewish museum and the cemetery can count as one very interesting visit. It not does make sense to visit one without visiting the other. The entire old Jewish area is worth visiting.

A must see attraction if you are in Prague. Very thought provoking. Well worth the ticket price. Unusually for Prague well organised.

I have been told the story of the Golem since I was a child and Rabbi Loew to protect the Jews in the ghetto and Rabbi Loew is buried in the cemetary. The synagogues are beautiful.

We came to the museum in Jan 2017, we budgeted most of a day to learn about the city's Jewish history. We had been to a few Jewish history museums before in other cities and were particularly excited to visit this one given Prague's storied past. To begin, we were surprised to pay more than double admission than what we... More

Thank you for your comments. JMP is a museum with exhibitions in historic areas, which significantly reduces the exposure solutions. On the other hand, JMP offers on display an unprecedented quantity and quality of what many other institutions are lacking: original collection items, so they do not resort to their presentation through modern media. We are aware however, that exposures... More

Very chilling to read all the names on the walls,and the pictures in the glass cabinets,makes you think about the atrocities which shouldn't be forgotten. Thought provoking.

As another reviewer said "very sad but we should never forget". We bought the full ticket and visited the museum and the synagogues. All the attractions were beautiful, however the cemetery is the one attraction that really stayed with me as the contrast between the ancient gravestones with the city backdrop is just storybook stunning.

Staying in Josefov

Neighborhood Profile
Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighborhood centered around Široká street is completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small enough that a person could touch the houses on both sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this neighborhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
