I just happened upon the museum about 90 minutes before they closed. I went on and purchased a ticket (that covers all the Jewish quarter) and it was so worth it. I was not prepared for the impact of the museum itself and was emotionally...More

I would recommend booking a tour of the Jewish quarter, in which the guide gets any tickets you need in advance, rather than trying to tackle this area on your own. When trying to check out the location the day before our visit, we were...More

Practicalities first: Combined ticket is good value. Well brown-signposted from Malo Stanska metro. Second: it was a powerful experience for the whole family as both the 20th century history and prior history is movingly explored.

Really interesting piece of history with respectful homage to the many lives lost in Prague during the World War. Centrally located and reasonably priced.

We got a combi ticket for the jewish quarter (no credit cards, cash only), and went to visit the sights, what took us about 90 minutes. A guide was not necessary.

Josefov
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
sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this
