Jüdisches Museum Wien (Jewish Museum Vienna)

  Dorotheergasse 11      +43 1 53 50 43 13 10     more than a year ago
The first of its kind in the world when it opened, the Jewish Museum Vienna divides its extensive collection of Jewish historical and religious artifacts between two city centre locations. Most of the exhibitions are displayed in the Palais Eskeles at the Dorotheergasse location, while the Judenplatz facility features the foundations of a 15th century synagogue and the medieval Jewish ghetto, as well as Rachel Whiteread’s impressive monument to the 65,000 Austrian Jews who were exterminated during the Holocaust. The museum was opened in 1896 and more than a century of tumultuous history is lovingly and intricately detailed across the locations. The Jewish population is and has always been immensely vital to the development and cultural life of this great city, and nowhere is that best explored than at the world’s oldest Jewish Museum.
