Drawing on recent archaeological and building history research, which is combined with the latest technology, the new permanent exhibition at Museum Judenplatz vividly presents the excavations of the medieval synagogue, destroyed in 1421, and the topography of the former Jewish quarter. Art installations, interactive stations, and children’s activities provide a brand-new perspective on the history of the first Jewish community in Vienna.
