  • This is hands-down the worst Museum we have ever been to. I use the term "Museum" very loosely. Not only was it very expensive but we all came out more confused about Jewish History than we were when ...  more »

  • Museum itself is really small and can be seen in 1h but make sure you get a guide tour (they are free). Our guide was absolutely amazing and we learned so much in 2 hours.
  • Would not call this place as a museum but meeting, conference centre etc. The place has no any collection to display, anyway there are some displays about history, religion and tradition.
  • Shows history of the country, including an entertaining, but also eye-opening, comic strip
  • There is nothing to see about jews and the price is too high. 6 eur/pro person.
  • We loved it
