Don't forget to visit this place when you're in the area. It gives a compelling oversight of jewish history in the city, it also dives into recent history: how are the Austrians dealing with their past? In the cellar there are temporary exhibitions. And the...More

This museum is very well done. Headphones available in several languages and staff more than happy to be of assistance. Very nice cafe with good food is located in the museum.

Small museum in a small town so expectations were not high, however the Jewish history in the area was well charted. Many of the recent (post WW2) vignettes seemed to end prematurely and the visitor was left "hanging" -- for example some contact between the...More
