Top ways to experience Jewish Museum Vienna and nearby attractions

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.

    Two Museums, One Ticket
    No human should face the atrocities the Jewish minority faced in Europe on many occasions. The museum has four floors. The ground floor is an introduction showing how the current wave of intolerance resembles older the older waves of anti-Semitism in Europe with a special focus on Vienna/ Austria. I would have wanted more history and less photos and objects in shoowcases. If you would like to go, I recommend going to Museum Judenplatz afterwards because it's related and it is payed for with the same ticket. Museum Judenplatz is shorter but much more historical and has many old artifacts as part of the museum.

    Average.
    Unlike a lot of Jewish museums I've been to, this one seems to focus on a wide-compassing array and not just WW2. There are lots of old artifacts and relics to look at. A fair amount of reading. One entire floor was closed because they were changing exhibitions but they still charge full price, and only after I tapped my card... not a great look.

    Two small museums for one ticket - not well laid out
    Small museums - two for one ticket price. The synagogue ruins was very fascinating - a lot of that information seemed to be repeated in the other location. No clear path or set way through the other museum. So bit disappointing as could be presented better.

Fascinating museum, not very well known but totally worth your time
I learned so much, eventhough it's a small museum
The staff is so nice, the offered me a folding chair as she could see I'm tired (this was my last day in town walking walking walking...)
Highly recommend if you are or are not Jewish!

I have been to fantastic museums. This isn't one of them
The design is extremely poor
The lighting is poor and the organization nonexistent. Plaques to read ( there are a lot of them) are many times in dark areas and knee height. So far it is the least interactive and engaging museum I have ever been to.

Not very engaging. All reading no commentary or actual artifacts. Did little to engage my interest. Not everyone were told to use the lockers.

As some other reviewers noted, the displays in the museum mention but minimize the anti-Semitic history of Vienna, which is better described in Stoppard's Leopoldstadt or the TV series "Vienna Blood". Perhaps the simplest example of not lying but surely playing loose with the truth - the website trumpets "the first Jewish museum in the world". It may or may not be true that Vienna had the first Jewish museum but this museum acknowledges long periods when Vienna did not have one (not just WW2 but also the 1960-80s period). Is this place entitled to claim being first with gaps like that?

A good insight into Vienna and the Jewish population. The top floor had a selection of items from different countries - all related to ceremonies - collections from two well-known gentlemen. There was more information on the other floors about the life of Jews in the city - interesting to see how their fate depended on the rulers....worth a visit and the ticket included the visit to the museum in the Judenplatz.

The Jewish Museums (there are two different buidlings) always are worth visiting, especially when there is one of the well-curated extra exhibitions are on.

The museum is excellent and well worth a visit.
It shows how the Jews have lived in the city as well as the horrors that they endured.
