Recentlty visited here and wasn't that impressed.. a bit of a money making look around a cemetery and some artefacts that really didn't impress me. A look and understanding of what went on in Prague dating back some years before the second world war.
Security obviously all around especially the guy taking the money hidden behind a glass panel looking through a letter box.
Anyway wasn't impressed ...

Thank you for your comment.
The price, from our point of view, corresponds with the uniqueness of the visited sites and it is on par with the admission to other major European cultural heritage. The ticket includes several buildings including the unique exposures in most of them and it is valid for 7 days. The Jewish Museum in Prague is a private institution that fully funds its operations - not only its exhibitions, but also its educational, publishing, scientific and archival work. A large part of the revenue is used for the care of the world's unique collections, and it is spent on restoration and reconstruction of historic buildings in the area of Prague's former Jewish Town.
We will look forward your next visit of the Jewish Museum in Prague!

A very sobering yet insightful historic museum. The Audio Guide helped explain all the areas to enhance the experience. Definitely worth a visit to understand a sad time in the history of man.

What an absolute rip off.
300 Crowns per person to walk round a muddy, leaf strewn area of heaped broken headstones, or they could have been paving slabs - very hard to tell in most cases.
No written explanation of what we were seeing.
The 300 Crowns also gave access to a Synagogue, once we found it. Lots of paper items in Jewish...
Lots ofJewish silver....
In every room there were begging bins for you to put even more money into the Jewish Quarter coffers.
Really worth giving the whole experience a BIG miss.

Thank you for your comments and your visit. 300 CZK you mention does not give acces to the Old Jewish Cemetery an "a" synagogue but a whole set of historical sites including: Maisel Synagogue / Pinkas Synagogue / Old Jewish Cemetery / Klausen Synagogue / Ceremonial Hall / Spanish Synagogue + temporary exhibitions in the Robert Guttmann Gallery, all unique sites of cultural heritage.
The "strewn area of heaped broken headstones, or... paving slabs" is actually one of the oldest surviving Jewish burial grounds in the world and the earliest tombstone dates back to 1439.
The Klausen Synagogue you probably had in mind which disappointed you with "lot of paper items in Jewish" introduces in its permanent exhibition the primary sources of Judaism – the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) and the Talmud both written in Hebrew.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope you will enjoy your next visit better!

Prague is a great "walking city" and a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter is very interesting. The several synagogues and the cemetery that are definitely worth visiting. The orthodox synagogue is one of the oldest in the world. The tour traces Jewish history in Prague and the changes over the centuries including the holocaust. The visit to the museum is quite moving. There are children's drawings made during the holocaust and you realize that most of the children did not survive. This is not a "fun" tour but it is one that should be made by anyone visiting Prague.
It is hard to believe that such inhumanity existed yet a small community still survives.

Very moving area of Prague especially the Pinkus Synagogue and old cemetery. When you first enter Pinkus Synagogue you notice the designs on the walls and it's not till you get closer that you realize the "design" are actually the names of people who died during that horrible time. Very, very moving. Don't miss.
