  • in 2016 I had not been able to visit the museum. This was done in November 2019.Small museum, with a collection of objects devoted to the Jewish religion, and about the history of the Jews of Venise.Intéressant.Je could not visit the synagogues, only seen through a glass. Admission at 8 euros, extensive search of bags, as well as police presence inside the museum (normal).

  • I've never been treated so rudely. I came with a Venice pass but apparently did something incorrectly and was basically yelled at by the employee. I was interested in a guided tour and showed up at the scheduled time for a English tour but couldn't even take part in it as a was rudely just told to go in up the stairs without any explanation. Without a tour there is so little to see and really not worth a visit. Very little on the interesting history of the first ghetto is documented here and you are better off just googling it from home. Awful experience.
  • Well run, thorough museum. Exhibits are well designed and informative—highly recommend the tour of the three synagogues. It really helps place you within Venetian and Jewish history!
