Slovak National Museum- Museum of Jewish Culture

One of the key ideas during the founding of the Museum of Jewish Culture in Bratislava was the effort to eliminate taboos surrounding Judaism and to present the several centuries of the Jewish minority’s presence in Slovakia.

The permanent exhibition outlines the history of Jews since their arrival on the territory of today’s Slovakia in the 1stcentury CE until today. It provides a glimpse into the daily life of the Jewish population, an overview of the most important holidays, the interior of a synagogue, as well as important personalities of Jewish origin who put Slovakia on the map in various areas of artistic, cultural, social and scientific life.
