  • This museum is in its early stages of development but its concept and objective is vital. The initial 1000 years of Italian Jewish history is fascinating. There is much to read - some explanations are...  more »

  • This recently opened portion of what will be a larger museum is about the worst museum I’ve ever been to. The introductory video is terrific - it sets out the museum’s plan to offer more than a simple...  more »

  • Great museum
  • It is suitable to understand why there are Jews in Italy. The current exhibition, which opened on 13 December 2017 is very informative, comprehensible and well prepared. Will remain open until 16 September 2018. The captions of the 200 pieces on display and the comments of the Hall are bilingual: Italian and English. It's called: "Jews, an Italian story, the first thousand years". In fact the pieces on display are dated from the 2nd century BC to the middle ages, 10th century AD. If you don't appreciate the gravestones, epigraphs (TENs), manuscripts (20), the incunabula (7), the medieval documents (18), seals, jewellery, coins, lamps and interesting originals amulets, go and spend 10 euros ... with scratch cards.

  • Despite the habitud and love for museums, I found the content poorly presented; the Museum is very dense and offers little material for the cost of the ticket (€8). There are thousands of more interesting things to do in Ferrara. In addition, during the three-hour visit we were pursued for the safety of the place by each one of the rooms. Disappointing.

  • Under construction before completing the whole history of Judaism, it will take a little longer. For now limited to the first 1000 years. Interesting

  • Well done, at least in part of the story on the first Millennium. To improve a bit the game-garden with a caption. I hope soon the section of the second millennium. Unfortunate thing: on the day of memory there was no event, and no specific guidance. Too bad.
