Budapest Jewish Museum

Jewish Museum


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.
