  • 6 euro is a lot for the museum. Exhibits are interesting and do provide some information on the role of the jewish quarter. However you can read and look at all the exhibition within 30 mins. I felt t...  more »

  • This "Museum" does not offer anything of interest. Just a set of pannels with some information (including some spelling mistakes) about the jewish history of the city. Very expensive. Clearly set up t...  more »

  • Excellent. Not your typical museum though. Be prepared to sit through a talk with a very knowledgeable historian. To get the most out of it, ask questions and make it a discussion. There's really no time limit, and our guide spent a lot of time on the details we cared about. The information and exhibits in the room augment the discussion. The Jewish history in Sevilla is rather complex, and the manner of presentation was well suited to work through the many possible paths and stories.
  • It's such a heavy piece of history to listen to; the guide lady told the story so completely. We enjoyed the visit. Although not much artifacts left, as it all happened almost 700 year ago. It's nice this place made an effort to keep the history.
  • The Center itself is fine, with limited artifacts but lots of material to learn from. But the real prize here is taking their tour of the Jewish Quarter. It covers history and culture and brings it all to life. Rebecca is a fantastic tour guide. And taking the tour includes access to the center. So do yourself a favor and take the tour, and learn about Seville and it's Jewish history. It's fantastic.
  • short, beautiful, fascinating and smart
  • This is an excellent little museum of Sephardic Jewish history in Sevilla. A must see

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
