We felt very frustrated after the visit. Note: we are not Jewish. For the price charged ($US25 per person which includes 2 different tickets: one to visit the cemetery and one to visit the old new Synagogue - they are sold separately...), you would expect to have a guide or at least some documentation to provide some explanations about the place and its history. But there were none. And you are not allowed to take any picture. It is still impressive to see what happened there. But we felt it was more a money grab then anything else.
Thank you for your review. The Old-New Synagogue is owned by the Jewish community in Prague, not the Jewish Museum in Prague. That is why the tour is not included in the tour of the JMP. This information is however given everywhere where tickets are sold. You can buy separate tickets or a combined ticket to visit all the sites.
Since 2015 taking pictures is allowed everywhere in each museum site without any restrictions after purchasing a photo permit.
We do recommend to do a guided tour in case you are interested in more detail and to fully enjoy your visit. Tours with a certified guide of the Jewish Museum in Prague are available for individual visitors as well as organized groups. Guided tours in English are held daily during the museum's opening hours usually at 10.30 am and at 14.00 pm. (It is necessary to check this information at the Information and Reservation Center ).
Guided tours in English scheduled for other times can be booked by appointment. For more information on guided tours and admission can be found on our website. Thank you for your understanding. We will be happy to welcome you again!
