  • Museum small and disorganized, especially compared to the price. Explanatory labels insufficient; also the English version is of very poor quality. The guided tour of the synagogues is interesting but uninspiring. To avoid if you have the opportunity to visit other Jewish museums and synagogues in Europe.

  • So beautiful. Amazing history. Just be prepared that in summer it's very hot inside
  • Very nice and hot museum. The history they have will leave you with a new mind set on Jewish culture and what they went through to be free.
  • Nice museum but it didn't have an interactive media tour. It was also very hot inside not sure they had an air conditioner
  • It's worthwhile going. You can visit the Jewish Ghetto at the same time. This is where the Jews were confined. It was locked and guarded by Christian guards every night. The Museum includes an entire synagogue with separate areas for the men and the women, who observed everything from a gallery upstairs.
  • Some great info about the creation of the Jewish presence in Venice and what happened during the war. Can only visit synagogue on top floor if you pay extra although if you don't you can still see the inside through small windows.
