Being a member, you will be invited to special cultural and social gatherings and you will get to meet interesting people, establish new contacts and make new friends. You will have unlimited free access to the permanent exhibitions of one of the largest Jewish museums in the world and to the temporary exhibitions at the Robert Guttmann Gallery. You will be able to freely attend the evening programmes at the Jewish Museum’s Education and Culture Centre and you will receive free tickets to concerts at the Spanish Synagogue, among other advantages. Joining at a higher membership category will enable you to visit the Jewish Museum’s depositories that are closed to the public and to meet major artists and personalities that support the Museum. An independent institution that takes care of the monuments of one of the oldest and most important centres of Jewish life in Europe, the Jewish Museum in Prague (JMP) is consistently the most visited museum in the Czech Republic. It was founded in 1906 in response to the extensive redevelopment of the area of Prague’s Jewish Town and with the aim of preserving monuments that were irretrievably disappearing. The largest expansion of the Jewish Museum’s collections occurred during the Second World War, when selected items confiscated by the Nazis from Jewish communities in Bohemia and Moravia were deposited there. The Jewish Museum is also a memorial to the victims of the Shoah from Bohemia and Moravia. The Jewish Museum has significantly contributed to the development of Jewish culture and to the furthering of education about Jewish history, Jewish customs, anti-Semitism and the Holocaust. You too have an opportunity to influence the future of this institution, which is unique in terms of its history and the character of its collections.
