Prague's Jewish History

With over 500,000 visitors a year, this is the most frequented museum in the Czech Republic. The Jewish museum is full of historical and ritual artifacts. All of the objects in the museum were first gathered in at the beginning of the 20th century by members of the Jewish community in hopes of creating a Jewish museum. During WWII they were taken from the Jewish people by the Nazis, then passed through the hands of the Communist regime. With the fall of the communist regime in 1989, the museum was reopened to the public and today it is finally owned and operated again by the Jewish community. Each object has a unique story, and they are all now compiled together into a common message of history and culture. The exhibitions of the museum are located in six important Jewish sites all centered around the museum itself. The tours are highly recommended.
