  • Describes the appearance of the Jews in the early years up to their lives after the tragedy of the Holocaust. The visitor still can learn in detail about religion (holidays, clothing), their professional activity as merchants. My visit lasted 1.5 hours and through the material of the Museum in travel time and culture I feel excited and full of historical facts!

  • All peoples...all races...all religions should visit this museum. As a species are we ever to learn true wisdom, tolerance, bravery and compassion? Here might be a good start. As I was putting away my purse after purchasing our tickets a French woman approached the counter and asked if she could take a photograph of one of the black marble plaques. She had found the names of .. "her family". Permission granted..."that's OK ,we always allow for this". The black plaques are a memorial to the Salonican victims of the Holocaust...and must list up to 45,000 names. The rest of the museum is rather beautiful, highly informative and amazingly manages also to be a celebration of Jewish life and culture in Salonica before their biggest tragedy in this part of the world.
  • Fantastic museum. Well worth visiting. It's not small as some other posts have suggested. Give yourself 90 minutes to see it all. Not to be missed. Should make it compulsory for every child and Young adult in Europe to visit Jewish history museums.
  • Small but very informational if you don’t know much about Byzantine-Ottoman history and the movement and struggles of the Jews. I spent a vey quiet and contemplative hour and a half there. I really was both fascinated and moved but have some interest in this area.
  • Worth it. I warmly advise you to step in.
  • Expected more than exhibited, especially for 5€ entrance fee.
