The Jewish Museum in Vienna reflects the history of the city's Jewish population. The exhibits of the museum tell visitors about the life of the wealthy Jews of the Austrian capital, including Zweig, Freud, Schoenberg, Mahler, Herzl.
Since 1993, the Jewish Museum has been housed in the Eskeles Palace, which is located in a picturesque location near the Cathedral of St. Stephen. The medieval palace, built in the Baroque style, was for a long time the property of bankers Arnstein and Eskeles (Jews by origin), but they never lived in this house. The initiator of the creation of the museum was the burgomaster Helmut Zilk.
The museum often hosts exhibitions on contemporary and historical themes, displaying exhibits from the history of Austrian-Jewish relations. For example:
