Jüdisches Museum Wien
Since October 2011, the Jewish Museum shines in new splendor. In addition to a complete renovation of the building in Dorotheergasse, the permanent exhibitions and the show depot have been given a new content.
After the renovation, the Jewish Museum in Palais Eskeles welcomes its visitors with a light installation by the artist Brigitte Kowanz on the façade and a spacious entrance area, which has been faithfully restored to its original state. The permanent exhibitions at the Jewish Museum are divided into three areas: The newly arranged show depot presents collections and the collector personalities behind them, such as Max Berger. The studio is both a workshop and exhibition space for ritual everyday objects.
Since November 2013, the new permanent exhibition "Our City!" has been providing a comprehensive insight into Jewish life and the history of Jewish Vienna, leading from the present into the past. The journey begins on the ground floor with the years from 1945 until today. On the second floor of Palais Eskeles, visitors experience Jewish history from its beginnings to the years 1938/1945. 3D animation makes Vienna's synagogues destroyed in 1938 virtually accessible.
The Jewish Museum also hosts exciting temporary exhibitions and numerous events. On the ground floor there is the Café Eskeles and the museum shop Gottfried & Söhne with interesting books, Jewish music and design products from Israel.
