map showing Jewish Museum in Prague in Prague
The Jewish Museum in Prague is a collection of the most significant monuments in the Jewish Quarter (excluding the Old-New Synagogue, which is a separate entity).

This represents the best preserved complex of historical Jewish monuments in Europe, and includes a number of synagogues, the Jewish Ceremonial Hall, the Old Jewish Cemetery and the Robert Guttmann Gallery.

Visitors can gain entry either by purchasing a 'Jewish Museum in Prague' ticket or by taking a Jewish Quarter Tour with the museum ticket included in the price (beware, some tours do not include it).

A Jewish Museum in Prague ticket covers entrance to:

Maisel Synagogue
Founded in 1592, Maisel Synagogue exhibits a cross-section of the history of the Jews in Bohemia from the early Jewish communities of the 10th century through to their emancipation in the 18th century.

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'.

Spanish Synagogue (currently closed for renovation)
The exhibition at the Spanish Synagogue follows on chronologically from Maisel Synagogue. It details the history of the Czech and Moravian Jews from the 18th century to the present day.

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 15th century, the Old Jewish Cemetery is among the oldest surviving Jewish burial grounds in the world, and is one of the most important historical monuments in the Jewish Quarter in Prague.

Robert Guttmann Gallery
The gallery, named after the Prague painter Robert Guttmann (1880-1942), presents temporary exhibitions focusing on Jewish life, the persecution of Bohemian and Moravian Jews during the Second World War, Jewish monuments in the Czech Republic, and the Jewish presence in contemporary visual art.
