The Prague Jewish Museum contains a large collection of rare Jewish art, a collection that attests of the long history and rich tradition of the Jews in Prague and all of Czechoslovakia.
The different museum wings are spread around Jewish sites around the whole city, for example the Maisel Synagogue, Klausen Synagogue, the Spanish Synagogue and the Pinkas Synagogue - the several buildings still standing from the Jewish ghetto in Prague. The ghetto is 1,000 years old, most of it destroyed in the 19th century, to construct wider streets in the city.
Klausen Synagogue - Judaica displays and documents of ceremonies and Jewish holidays.
Maisel Synagogue - More from the Judaica displays, with a focus on textiles and books.
Pinkas Synagogue - Children drawings from the Theresienstadt Ghetto closed to the city, and the memorial walls for the Czechoslovakian Jews who were killed in the Holocaust, included 77,297 engraved names.
