Jewish Museum in Prague

The Jewish Museum in Prague is the largest museum of its kind in Europe, managing one of the most extensive collections of Judaica in the world.

The purpose of the Jewish Museum in Prague was to document the history, traditions, and customs of the Jewish population of Bohemia and Moravia. The Museum, founded in 1906, is currently looking after forty thousand collection items and one hundred thousand books.

What makes the Jewish Museum in Prague unique is not just the mere extent of its collection, but especially the fact that the collection items come from a single compact area – Bohemia and Moravia. Thus, the collection gives a compact picture of the life and history of Jews in this region.

The Jewish Museum manages the following synagogues and other structures located within the former Prague ghetto, containing permanent expositions:

Maisel Synagogue
Spanish Synagogue
Pinkas Synagogue
Old Jewish Cemetery
Klausen Synagogue
Ceremonial Hall (the Prague Burial Society building)
Robert Guttmann Gallery
Education and Culture Centre
