Skip the queues and immerse yourself in a world of fascinating history at the Jewish Museum Vienna. The museum's original site was the first museum of its kind in the world and the newly renovated second building charts the plight of Austrian Jews throughout history. Unafraid of tackling difficult subjects, the museum is as provocative as it is thought-provoking!
The permanent exhibitions cast a critical eye on the expulsion of Viennese Jews in the 1400s and the period after 1945 when Jews struggled to rebuild their shattered communities in postwar Vienna. The Installation of Memory and Memory Map exhibitions are touching tributes to survivors of persecution all over the world.
At the same time, it's a vibrant celebration of Jewish life and culture, showcasing the sense of close-knit community and trademark sense of humor which has survived some of the darkest periods in human history.
Jewish history is understandably a sensitive issue in Austria, but the Jewish Museum Vienna handles its subject with the utmost sensitivity and respect.
