Jewish Museum Zagreb is the second museum of Jewish culture in Croatia. The museum represents more than 200 years of Croatian Jewish community in Zagreb.
TIP: DURING JULY AND AUGUST THE MUSEUM CAN BE VISITED ONLY WITH PRIOR ANNOUNCEMENT. PLEASE SCHEDULE YOUR TOUR IN ADVANCE AS THE TOUR INCLUDES A VISIT TO ZAGREB SYNAGOGUE.
Jewish Museum Zagreb is one of the latest museums in Zagreb. It holds an exceptional collection of sacral art. As a matter of fact, the museum holds around 150 exhibits which witness the Croatian Jewish community rich spiritual life since 1806.
The community collected these artefacts for decades and most of them are sacral objects, preserved within Jewish families. Not only do they present their rich historical heritage, but also their cultural, art and economic contributions to society.
Both the Jewish Museum and community are continually collecting and preserving historical and Holocaust objects. They hope they will get to display it in a much larger museum in the future.
