  • 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 by 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.

  • 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.
  • Excellent contribution of the Museum to understand the past of the Jewish quarters of the city. We currently need much imagination to give life to the greater Jewish past. Despite the excellent work of the Museum and historians of the. Size of victoria mora help to shed light on the matter.
