The museum gives a backdrop of Jewish life in Vienna up to the Anschluss and Holocaust and is located on several floors. It is easy to get round and follow the way it has been curated which adds I think to the interest of the...More
The ticket is a combined experience: 1. The story of Jewish life in Vienna and 2. about 10 minutes away the Judeaplatz museum has the medieval synagogue beneath the Holocaust memorial. At first we couldn’t understand why the museum was split into two sites. But...More
It was an interesting museum, and I’m glad we went. We almost missed the upstairs until we inquired. I especially enjoyed the first floor with multi-media presentations. It was even more than we could take in at the end of our day so I wished...More
In many ways I preferred the smaller exhibit in the Judenplatz adjacent to the Shoa Memorial. The stories of Jewish women who had been married to unselfish men still resonates with me. (Marriages of Convenience in Exile). Some maintained no contact with their new husband,...More

We visited both museums for the combined price of €12 each. The man on the desk at the smaller museum was particularly helpful. It is worth visiting both museums as they have different things to offer. We were particularly impressed with the artefacts on the...More

We bought a combined ticket for both this Jewish Museum and also the Holocaust Memorial in Judenplatz (Euros 12 each and free for children). The museum is on 3 floors and is a portrait of Jewish life in Vienna through the ages. I found it...More
My friend and I found the atmosphere in here rather tense and not quite sure why. We always felt we were being watched and indeed we were which was rather uncomfortable at times. Notwithstanding this we found this a very informative museum of the history...More

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.
