After a look at present-day Vienna, the exhibition takes you back to Jewish Vienna from the Middle Ages to the Holocaust on the second floor. A multimedia guide provides visitors with additional perspectives on the exhibits. The collections are presented and placed in a historical context along with the objects’ places of origin – the synagogues or the collectors such as Max Berger or Martin Schlaff.  The foundations of the medieval synagogue are presented in the Museum Judenplatz.

What people are saying about Jewish Museum Vienna

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 2,943 reviews

Overall the pass was a wonderful option allowing us to decide what to see and when. The staff was wonderful and very helpful and provided some ideas on getting around which attractions were close to each other. The only thing I would say is make sure on day of arrival get there early to get your pass. We got there the day before but about an hour after 12 so we could not get our passes.

I liked the Judenplatz museum which depicts the early history of the Jews in Austria & Vienna. The more modern Jewish museum was less interesting for me, being Jewish and from Israel. I think it's important for people who are not familiar with the important heritage and tragic history of the Viennese Jews.

This is great to get around Vienna, be aware of the discount benefits to avail the card to the most benefit. Some restaurants have 5-10% discounts.
