  • Neve Synagogue, historical, beautifully maintained. The attached museum gives a good sense of the history of the Jews and of the country, especially the animated maps showing where people traveled from, by boat and horse drawn carriage
  • Don't be alarammed by the heavy doors, the security check isn't really such a big deal. The museum itself is nice and interesting, not a must see but a good addition to your trip
  • Interesting, detailed exhibits and information about Jewish people in Turkey. Also includes a visit to the beautiful, large synagogue in the building.
  • Hard to find. Not welcoming. Security like on airport. Quite expensive for what you get. But in the end of you are patient enough it does tell a compelling story
  • Very interesting and informative. There is also a haunting gallery of Holocaust photos in colour. Tight security. Take photo ID.
