  • Given that I visited Venice only two days, I decided with a friend to visit the Jewish Museum. Aside from the rudeness of the staff, the museum looks like a three-storey building in which there are two rooms and a synagogue. The memorabilia are mostly carpets, candlesticks, dishes and junk used to catering. In a room three tablet explain in brief (from the perspective of three people-historians, artists, represented the Jewish community ...) some themes of the ghetto. The synagogue is available only to those who pay the Guide. Having said that € 10 for two in three carpets are an exaggeration. Might as well take a ride from IKEA textile section. I find that the Jewish cemetery of Prague has many more relics and is structured better. At least lower the entrance fee.

  • A must stop for all Jews.. great historical ghetto of Venice .. learn !
  • The guide was boring and appeared uninterested. The shop attendants were unfriendly. The receptionist unhelpful. I love learning about Jewish history but this was disappointing.
  • Very interesting the museum ebraico. Walking with free venice city tour
  • Bello e interessante
  • Worth to see it just for the synagoges interiors
