  • Expected much more Exhibit has many Jewish artifects but little beyond. Not enough explanations and background  more »
  • WOW!! very well done. I like the way they did the outside courtyard. The sculpture of the Tree is spectacular.  more »
  • near the metro station Astoria tickets cost its not cheap 4000huf and of course closed on Saturday. worth it if you are keen on this sort of thing. otherwise it's not worth it. We looked forward to the 11:30 to make the visit with the Italian Guide (included in the ticket price) very nice garden with the tree of life, the Museum leaves a little to be desired

  • love it!
  • A mais antiga Sinagoga da Europa abriga o museu Judaico, com peças que contam a história deste religião no continente. Funciona de Domingo a Sexta, de 10:00 as 18:00 (Sexta até as 16:30). Fica próximo da estação do metrô: Astoria na linha M2.
  • 我只想说,在附近停车一定要注意!不止是要及时缴费,还要留意附近的🅿️标志,有些是固定车位,缴费也没用!就离开两分钟,回来就被锁了!罚了11500福林!
  • Contains beautiful objects of the Jewish religion. Cute.
