Jewish Museum Vienna – Judenplatz

Vienna | Austria

About the Museum

This museum is divided into two locations, the Jewish Museum Dorotheergasse and Judenplatz. Both offer unique overviews of Viennese Jewish history and today’s vibrant Jewish community. Inaugurated in 2000, the Museum Judenplatz is home to the excavations of a medieval synagogue and an accompanying permanent display on medieval history. Outside the museum stands the Holocaust Memorial by leading contemporary artist Rachel Whiteread, commemorating the 65,000 Austrian Jews killed during the Shoah.
