The extensive information in each room made this little museum one of the most interesting we visited in Spain. Clear display panels (including equal access in English) were highly informative and the artifacts shown really illuminated this culture. The tranquil courtyard was also lovely. Well worth your time.

We planned on visiting the Synagogue but it was being renovated. Instead we visited this museum which was next door. It was a great decision and I really enjoyed the visit. I recommend it to any visitor to Cordoba.

Now we can see where they were before that. There are several small rooms. They explain Judaism and the Spanish community. Most displays were in Spanish and... More

Beautiful courtyard house turned into a museum of everyday life for Spehardic Jews living in Cordoba before the Catholic expulsion of Jews and Muslims. Also gives information on the famous philosopher Maimonedes. The last room gives background on the horrors of the Inquisition.

I took a group of 50 students and we spent an entire day here. Exceptional guides who knew their history and were able to relate the Spanish Jewish experience in a personal and existential manner. Highly recommend visiting!
