  • Museum small and disorganized, especially compared to the price. Explanatory labels insufficient; also the English version is of very poor quality. The guided tour of the synagogues is interesting but uninspiring. To avoid if you have the opportunity to visit other Jewish museums and synagogues in Europe.

  • Nice museum with quite some artifacts. Be sure to go on a guided tour of the old synagogues, otherwise you're only enjoying 30% of the beauty
  • Beautiful collection and nicely done descriptions. Highlight is the tour of the gorgeous synagogues.
  • Great museum. Tour of the old synagogues was amazing. Located in a neat little shopping ing area a little bit off the main tourist areas.
  • This museum is tucked away in the Venetian ghetto away from popular tourist attractions in Venice. It offers guided tours through 3 of the 5 Sephardic and Ashkenazi synagogues in the area, a cafeteria that serves traditional pastries, and a bookstore. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and the atmosphere is welcoming.
  • Went on a guided tour. Guide spoke good English and gave an excellent overview of Jewish Venice, it's Ghetto and 3 of the 5 synagogues. Also answered our questions. Gift shop definitely worth visiting. Lastly, the Museum also features a Kosher dairy cafeteria with cookies, pastries, coffee and average cuisine. Two days in a row, we enjoyed a quiet and relaxing lunch.
