The Jewish Museum is located in Dohány Street, in the building next to the synagogue.
The house which originally stood on this site has historic associations – Tivadar Herzl, the founder of Zionism, was born here and lived here for the first 18 years of his life.
A commemorative plaque marks its former location. The museum, erected in 1932, was designed by László Vágó; it houses the Jewish Religious and Historic Collection.
