This is a must see. The drawings from the children in the concentration camp is really amazing to see through their eyes. And a walk through the Jewish Cemetery is amazing. Recommend doing this.

The admission to this was so expensive, especially compared to other attractions that had more detailed exhibits (e.g. the National Monument to Heroes of Heydrich Terror). If you are interested in seeing tons and tons of religious artifacts, this is for you. There was a children's art exhibit filled with drawings done by children from the Terezin concentration camp which was fascinating. The other part of the complex of buildings which was extremely moving was the neat lines of calligraphy striping the walls of one of the synagogues-- a record of members of the Prague Jewish community who were sent to concentration camps, where they went, dates of birth and death. It will stop you cold.

Thank you for your review. As for the price, in our point of view, it is accurate to the uniqueness of the visited sites which can be compared to other major European heritage. JMP is a private institution and funds fully its operations - not only the exhibitions, but also scientific, publishing, educational and archiving work. A large part of the revenue is used for the care of the world's unique collection of museums, is spent on the repair and reconstruction of historic buildings in the area of Prague's former Jewish Town.

The museum and its associated five or so synagogues were interesting to visit, especially the one with the cemetery and children’s paintings. Very moving.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time and the minimum entrance fee also covered all the synagogues which we didn’t have time to visit. There is no option to do less than this!

The Jewish museum in Prague consists of 4 synagogues and the Jewish old cemetery where Rabi Lev (the Maharal) is buried. The visit shakes you with the beauty of the inside and remains of the large Jewish community that vanished in the holocaust. Especially shaking was the Pinkas Synagogue with almost 80000 names and dates of the murdered Czech Jews.

We very much wanted to see the Spanish synagogue and our walking tour guide highly recommended we purchase the ticket at the Information and Reservation location, Maiselova 15. The young woman attending the desk was surly, uncommunicative and not helpful. She is not suited for a position dealing with the public, especially since you know most of the people attending will likely be from outside Prague.
But that didn't stop us from being very moved and impressed with the Jewish Museum, spread out over 6 important locations, quite near to each other. What we saw has inspired further research and appreciation. A very important must-see in Prague!
