Admission to the Great Synagogue, Europe's largest, includes admission to this small museum, which is adjacent to it. This building was the birthplace of Theodor Herzl, the founder of Zionism. It holds a rich collection of Judaica, including items for everyday use as well as religious objects. Much of the collection only survived the war by being hidden in the basement of the National Museum. One room is devoted to the Holocaust, but for a more in-depth examination of it, visit the Holocaust Memorial Center.
