Jewish Museum - scammers alert

17/02/2020 10:00

Jewish Museum of Prague is the institution that takes care of the Jewish sites in the city centre (the Synagogues, the Old Jewish cemetery and the Ceremonial hall). It is definitely worth the visit as its judaica collection is huge and very well preserved. Only licenced tour guides are allowed to provide guided services there - that means having the licence of the Jewish museum of Prague or at least the licence of the City of Prague. The tour guide licence must be clearly displayed the entire time. A guide with no licence may not provide any guided services at any of the Museum sites - that applies to a few Czech guides (cca 10%) and a majority of foreigners who offer tours (approximately 90-95%). So if anyone without a valid licence is offering tours of the Jewish Prague then they're wittingly breaking the regulations of the Jewish Museum of Prague! And such a person will be removed from the Museum's premises.
