Map of Jewish Museum in Prague in Prague
The Jewish Quarter in Prague contains the best preserved complex of historical Jewish monuments in Europe, including a number of synagogues, the Jewish Ceremonial Hall and the Old Jewish Cemetery.

The 'Jewish Museum in Prague' is a collection of the most significant of these monuments, to which visitors can gain entry by purchasing a ticket or by visiting as part of a guided tour (the only building of note that is excluded is the Old-New Synagogue, which requires a separate ticket).

A Jewish Museum in Prague ticket covers:

Maisel Synagogue
The Maisel Synagogue exhibits a cross-section of the history of the Jews in Bohemia and Moravia, from the foundation of the Jewish communities here in the 10th century to the period of their emancipation in the 18th century.

Spanish Synagogue
The stunning Spanish Synagogue follows on chronologically from the Maisel Synagogue with an exhibition devoted to the history of the Czech and Moravian Jews from the 18th century to present day: Spanish Synagogue.

Pinkas Synagogue
Dating from 1535, the Pinkas Synagogue is the work of the Horowitz family. After the Second World War, the synagogue was turned into a Memorial to the Jews of Bohemia and Moravia murdered by the Nazis. On its walls are inscribed the names of the Jewish victims, their personal data, and the names of the communities to which they belonged. 80,000 names are inscribed.

Klausen Synagogue
Located at the entrance to the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Klausen Synagogue was the largest synagogue in the Jewish ghetto and the seat of the Prague Burial Society. It houses a permanent exhibition entitled 'Jewish Customs and Traditions'.

Jewish Ceremonial Hall
The Ceremonial Hall of the Prague Burial Society houses the second part of the exhibition 'Jewish Customs and Traditions'.

Old Jewish Cemetery
Founded in the first half of the 15th century, the Old Jewish Cemetery is one of the most important historical monuments in the Jewish Quarter in Prague.
