Jewish Museum

This is not a single building; nor does it include all the synagogues in Prague. The oldest one [the so-called Old-New Synagogue is separate. However, for those places that do constitute the Jewish Museum a single ticket gives entry to all.
It is an appalling thought thta the idea of a Jewish Museum in Prague seems to have originated with Hitler as a memory of a vanished race! Even if you don't think about this, some aspects of the visit may appear gruesome, such as the walls of the Pinkas Synagogue, covered in quite small writing by the names of Czech Jews who perished in the death camps.
The worst for me [a Goy by the way] were the writings done by children in the camps, exhibited in the Ceremonial Hall.
On the other hand the Spanish [so-called from its appearance] Synagogue simply appears as a place of great beauty. The Old Cemetary is absolutely fascinating. The Maisel and Klausen Synagogues had less individual impact on me.
