The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

We went there as part of the combined ticket with the other museum. It was good to have another perspective on the relationship between the Jewish population and the Viennese who were not of the same faith. It was also interesting to see the excavations showing a synagogue that was there many thousands of year ago and was only discovered in the 1990's.

The Jewish Museum at Judenplatz is a small museum concentrating on the history of Jewish life in Vienna. We found it very interesting. There are 2 Jewish museums in Vienna. The other is at Dorotheergasse, not far from Judenplatz. I believe that one ticket buys entry into both museums.

This is a small Jewish museum near the Holocaust memorial. The ticket includes admittance to this museum and the Jewish museum. This museum covers the history of Jews in Vienna starting around 1200 CE and the ruins of a synagogue from the 1400s. The other museum covers more of the Holocaust but this one is filled with a longer historical perspective. Much more history than I was aware of. The top floor is a rotating exhibit, currently focusing on Cafe Arabia, a coffee entrepreneur. I would give this about an hour. The staff was very helpful.

A very well presented explanation of Jewish history. A lot to take in. The remains of the synagogue and the story of its discovery are particularly striking.

Smaller than the "real" Jewish Museum but more intetesting. The accsess to the remains of the old synagogue under Judenplatz was very impressively made and makes the visit very worthwhile.

This is a more historic orientated museum and we found it more interesting than the larger museum. You get entry to both with the ticket but certainly worth a visit
