All of this is supported with live music, making it a fantastic world to escape into this Sunday.

Exhibition: 19th-20th century Jewish Experience in Bohemia and Moravia at Prague’s Jewish Museum.

Museums have been up and running in Prague for a while now, but if you haven’t heard, next week starts a crusade of free/discounted ticketing for local museums. To highlight a special exhibition, you can check out this Jewish Life in the Czech Republic for the last 200 years to understand the trials and tribulations of those living in a politically precarious time period. There are a variety of other exhibitions at the Jewish Museum you can explore as well, promising an educative and engaging day anytime this Fall.
