Permanent exhibitions: The History of the Jews in Bohemia and Moravia, Part 2 This exhibition deals with the history of the Jews in the Bohemian lands from the reforms of Joseph II in the 1780s to the period after the Second World War. It highlights the gradual advancement toward greater equality and emancipation for Jews in Austria-Hungary, describes the foundation of the Czech-Jewish and Zionist movements, and profiles the most important Jewish entrepreneurs, scientists, writers, musicians and artists (including Franz Kafka, Sigmund Freud and Gustav Mahler). It also deals with the redevelopment of the Prague Jewish Town, Jewish sites of Bohemia and Moravia, and the history of the Jewish Museum in Prague. Special focus is on the Shoah of Jews from Bohemia and Moravia, and the Terezin ghetto. Synagogue Silver from Bohemia and Moravia Located on the upper floor, this permanent exhibition features a representative selection of more than 200 of the most valuable silver artefacts from the museum's collections. Most space is given over to Torah ornaments - shields, pointers, finials and crowns. Also on display are charity boxes, pitcher and basin sets for hand washing, Shabbat spice boxes, Kiddush cups, Hanukkah and Shabbat candles, and charity collection trays. The Spanish Synagogue is part of the Jewsh museum in Prague. The Spanish Synagogue is the most recent synagogue in the Prague Jewish Town. Built in 1868 for the local Reform congregation on the site of the 12th-century Altschul, which was the oldest synagogue in the Prague ghetto. It was called the Spanish Synagogue for its impressive Moorish interior design, influenced by the famous Alhambra. The building was designed by Josef Niklas and Jan Bělský, the remarkable interior (from 1882–83) by Antonín Baum and Bedřich Münzberger. František Škroup, the composer of the Czech national anthem, served as organist here in 1836-45.

Such an ordinary modern building from outside. But inside a glorious surprise. Also see the other Synagogue on a group ticket

We happened upon the Spanish Synagogue quite by accident. A concert was about to take place, so we bought tickets. The experience of beauty was one of my favorites from Prague!

The synagogue is very beautiful with many articles on display. There were several tour parties there on the day we visited and some had quite loud guides which made reading the information quite difficult. We were disappointed that you can't buy a ticket just for...More

We are very happy that JMP is consistently the most visited museum in the Czech Republic, annually visited by 550.000 to 600.000 visitors. During the high season, especially during certain hours, such an interest can make your visit less pleasant. The ticket is valid for...More

A curiosity only. Built about a hundred years ago and bears more resemblance to a Mosque than to a european synagogue. Has no real jewish atmosphere. Entrance charge.

Absolutely beautiful! Inside is stunning and there is so much detail on the walls to keep your attention. We particularly thought the information provided as you walked around was great and the texts gave a lot of information. I found it really moving and emotional.

This is most most lavishly ornamented synagogue in Prague and my personal favourite. The light is a bit dimmer than in the other synagogue due to the darker tones of the walls, but the light plays nicely on the lighter parts of them

Interesting and stimulating time exploring the Jewish section of Prague. Would benefit from more benches to reflect and absorb, and also a little more information in English (or any language really) would really enrich the different sites. It was never very clear about where and...More

One of the highlights of Prague. A little away from most of the other synagogues but well worth visiting. Easily one of the most beautiful synagogues I've ever visited.

Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small
neighbourhood centered around Široká street is
completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As
the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a
few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish
cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small
enough that a person could touch the houses on both
