  • We have seen the story of the Jewish community of Athens. The evils and passions of the sad era of the Holocaust. We saw photos, handmade jewelry, old embroideries and weapons that we traveled back to the past. The explanatory records exhibits very well balmenes, legible and detailed. Video testimonies from Holocaust survivors about how they were saved by brave Greek citizens during the German occupation, is really touching. The Museum is relatively small and consists of three floors. The elevator is accessible to people with a wheelchair. Entrance fee 6 euros.

  • Very vell planned, small museum with a lovley receptionist. She was the kindest person ive ever come across at a museum in Greece. Feels legit and its nice to see the greek side of the jewish history.
  • Important story to be told. Very glad to be there
  • Very interesting exhibits of a wide variety and carefully constructed levels
  • I was nice surprised to see so many remembrances from the Greek Jewish world! And the service was really nice.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
