The Jewish Museum in Palais Eskeles displays collections on Jewish history, religion and culture relating the Vienna.

One of the main exhibits uses 21 holograms to portrait Jewish life in Vienna, from its beginnings in medieval Austria, through the various expulsions and World War II, up until the modern day.

The museum also holds a large amount of Jewish treasures and relics in its storage area. This storage area is open to the public, where visitors can sort through hundreds of artifacts such as Torah crowns and curtains, Hanukkah menorot and lamps and handmade silver and gold work, and much more. Most of these items were taken by the Nazi regime in 1938 when Austria was annexed.

The Jewish Museum is housed in the Palais Eskeles, a palace built in the 11th century that itself has a checkered and interesting history. It held at one point a respected Viennese banking institution, along with up market salons where the intellectuals, artists and high society of Vienna would meet. Later, the palace would become an art gallery, where artists such as van Gogh and Picasso would display their collections.

The museum is located in the center of Vienna, near a number of different attractions, and it open every day except for Saturday.
