  • It's a moving narrative of Jewish Greeks and Judaism in the world. It's centrally located near many ancient landmarks giving it an extra level of context when speaking of Israel and its early beginnings. A beautiful building with a sense of calmness and a library and exhibition space. Do visit it, there's a lot to learn and/or a lot to be reminded of.
  • The museum spirals upwards, a few steps per floor. The elevator, which you probably won`t need, has three stops. One very nice feature is the fact that the descriptions, in Greek and in English, are printed out and laminated so you don't have to bend down to read labels like in other museums. I would like to see more space devoted to the history of Greek Jewry. The sections on customs, religious artifacts and the Holocaust are very good, although the lighting in the Holocaust section needs to be improved. I found the information on Jews in the Greek resistance very informative. There is a nice gift shop which among the souvenirs also contains embroidery and some excellent relevant books.
  • After visiting dozens of museums at some point you realize it's not just about the collection but the way the curators chose to display it. This is an excellent overview of the treasures of the Greek Jewish history.
  • THE ACCOMODATING A HOT JULY SUNDAY AND OMOLOGOUMENOS ENTHOYSIASTIKA. NOT ISOS I SHOWS THE ACTUAL VALUE OF THE OTHER HAS DONE A VERY GOOD JOB REGARDING THE ORGANIZATION OF THE ISSUES AND OF COURSE, IS A JOURNEY INTO HISTORY AND THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT BECAUSE IN THE GREEK COMMUNITY EBRAIKI. DESERVES CONGRATULATIONS FOR PEOPLE WHO DIACHEIRIZONTAI!!! ALSO, THE SPECTACULAR EXHIBITION FOR CHILDREN WHO DIASWTHIKAN TO THE OCCUPATION!
