  • Beautiful Museum still in restoration. It's interesting but a little along the last part. During the week it pays and you have an audio-guide included in the price and fortunately because everything is translated in Spanish and catalan and some remains in English but for a moment you walk around without any explanations. Otherwise the Sunday it's free but you won't have audio guide... so good luck for the translation

  • Place of visit: MUHBA El Call Fecha of visit: 06/05/2017 at this museum can review the history of the Jewish quarter of Barcelona, from its origins, through touchscreens that are scattered throughout the Museum. We also have traces of ancient dwellings.

  • The Museum is housed in an old house Jewish where we can see its foundations. Next to the Museum, we have to visit the Jewish quarter or call as 4 plots or a few numbered alleys that can go in 10 minutes and where we can read explanatory posters of each singular point. The Museum is very didactic and using panels elaborates on the call, its history, its influence and its link to the city. Noteworthy is the role of the community between the cultures, Arab, Christian and Jewish, their influence in the city and this part of the Mediterranean Jewish communities, and its celebrities and their books, as some of the math and algebra inspired in the knowledge of Arabic origin. A small but complete and specialized museum which certainly will help us understand about this part of the history of the city which went into decline with the intransigence Christian at the time of the Crusades.

  • The information wasn't very clear and I from what I know there's a lot more to tell about the jews in Spain in those time and was a bit disappointed from the somewhat bland displays
  • Really great informative museum about the history of the Jewish community of Barcelona. There are many interactive exhibits that have many language options and a great video presentation.
  • Very small. As part of MUHBA project but interesting

  • Essential to know the Jewish past of the city. The Museum is small and the Museology is nothing of the other world.

  • The Jewish past of the city suffered great forgetfulness, realizes that in this Museum, which is to recover his memory. Perhaps you know just for minds eager to learn more about this part of the city's past. But it is in my opinion enough to encourage more restless minds to inquire more about this part of the history of Barcelona.
