This museum was the highlight of my visit to Cordoba. We were met at the door by a charming and well informed young man who told us about the museum and gave us some information sheets. Each room told us so much I wish I could remember it all, as part of my general knowledge. It was a fine introduction... More

The museum is well organized and quite informative. The story of the sephardic community's departure from Spain after the collapse of the Moors' empire in Spain is in fact a part of world history that goes well beyond Spain. But much of the information in the museum may be of more interest to those with closer ties to the sephardic... More

fascinating tribute to the Sephardi Jewish community that did so much for Spain hundreds of years ago. staff were genuinely interested in the subject and wanted to make sure that everyone understood what this was about. Really worthwhile spending up to an hour here.

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.

We are interested in the Jewish experience because we have a friend whose family was expelled from Spain. We went with him to Turkey where his ancestors relocated and his mother was born. 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.
