At Museum Judenplatz (open from 8:00 p.m.), the main focus lies on Jewish Vienna in the Middle Ages. The newly designed permanent exhibition “Our Medieval City! The First Jewish Community in Vienna” and the excavations of a medieval synagogue in Vienna will send you on a journey through time. Guided tours through the excavations of the synagogue take place at 8:30 p.m. / 9:30 p.m. / 10:30 p.m. / 11:30 p.m.
The current temporary exhibition “Yevgeny Khaldei. Photographer of Liberation” presents photos of Vienna’s liberation in the spring of 1945, as well as of civic life back then, and thus at a decisive moment in Austria’s history that continues to have an impact today.

Activities at the Jewish Museum Vienna on Dorotheergasse include a children’s program, guided tours through the current exhibitions “Everyman’s Jews. 100 Years Salzburg Festival” and “Hans Kelsen and the Elegance of the Austrian Constitution,” as well as through the Visual Storage. On top of that, Burgtheater actor Robert Reinagl reads from Gottfried Reinhardt’s recollections of his famous father, Max Reinhardt.
