  • Very well-assembled exhibition tells the story of the Sephardic Jews. Interesting and instructive. I recommend the guided tour to begin with. Then take some time to see everything calmly.

  • Visiting the Córdoba Synagogue nearby? Make sure you come here. The compact museum provides a full history of Jews living in Spain from the beginning, through each ruling empire and historic turn... s...  more »
  • It is a good place to understand the history of The Jews in Spain. It was a lot of introduction of the person who was active in the Jewish person, the relation with the Arab society, and the character who was active in the Arab society that the Jew was excluded from Cordoba where there were a lot of Jews. I learned that jews fled to Portugal quite a lot. There is also a Japanese translation of the biography of Memonides. It was 4 euros, but I think it's worth it.

  • A nice small museum showcasing the history of the Jews, expelled from Spain in 1492. There's a fair bit about Maimonodes, one of the most important intellectuals of the 12th/13th century- he died in 1204- who was a Jewish man from Cordoba. It's worth the small price of admission, though many of the artifacts lack full explanation.
  • Good introduction into the Sephardic heritage + judaism. The museum is located in a traditional house with patio. Info in several languages
  • Very nice place, a good surprise ! The house itself is beautiful and more than deserve a glimpse. The museum is about 10-12 rooms, with very good explanations provided both on panels (all at least in 2 langages, except for the inquisition part which is Spanish only) and in the document provided at the entrance. The topics covered are well chosen and give each time the appetite to know more, proof they are well pitched. Also, you can go with a baby trolley, there is an hidden elevator at the back.
  • A nice small museum that can be covered within 30 minutes of your time. It is a stone's throw from the historic Synagogue and the Maimonides statue. Good history information to be had at the museum. See my pictures for some interesting information on some of the women (Muslim & Jewish) of Cordoba at it's zenith. It's only €5
  • Well worth a visit if not because Cordoba has a tradition Muslums, Christians and Jews living side by side successfully. The museum explain the Jewish community in Cordoba and the significance of the Spanish Inquisition. Very informative though the presentation is a little 'dry'.
