The Maisel synagogue is perhaps the most richly decorated synagogue in Prague. It houses a magnificent exhibition and about the history of Jews of this region and their oppression and suffering.

A pretty nice synagogue. It has a lot of historic objects that are just amazingly displayed. It also has a lot of text about the Jewish people of Prague or in general. All of the text and objects are very well put together and there even is a huge touchscreen you can use to look at maps of how the Jewish part of town looked like or to see lots of other interesting things like an analysis of how jews are characterized and drawn by other cultures and much much more. The synagogue may be a bit less impressive in the looks department than the Spanish synagogue or the Jerusalem synagogue but it more than compensates for that with other thing previously mentioned.
Very nice place to visit. We spent the whole day visity the very famous Prague synagogues.
A very important piece of history. It looks great after the reconstruction: ot looks the same as in the beginning of the 20th century.
Interesting museum in an old synagogue.buy the tickets for the Jewish quarter herein order to avoid loooooooong lines at the Jewish cemetery. With a ticket from the museum you can simply skip those lines.
A good exhibition about Jewish community in the Middle Ages
