The museum is extremely interesting, especially if you were in Southern Spain and visited the Jewish Quarters of Toledo, Cordoba, and Sevilla. You learn how the Jews were treated in Moslem Spain vs. Christain Spain at the same time.

Good to stroll around in the old Jewish parts of Girona. A lot of history. The museum worth to visit.

The entire tale of the Jewish captivity in this town was amazing. We spent time exploring the narrow streets behind the walls and gates. There is a lovely Jewish Museum but it closes at 2 so we were not able to visit. The city is well preserved and I definitely recommend a visit.

Very interesting area. Some excellent restaurants and little shops selling very interesting gift items. The only place that we could find beautiful Spanish pottery and clay dishes.

What a fabulous area of the city to visit. Amazing architecture. This area of town is simply wonderful to stroll through and explore. Take your time and let it all seep in. (Note, some very narrow and steep streets if you have mobility issues)

We loved this area, especially at siesta, when there are very few people out. Little details on the walls, you can imagine the history centuries ago...

An extremely interesting city that still has buildings from the 13th century and before. Original crevices for mezuzahs are still there as well as the house of the Ramban. The Jewish Museum is adding exhibits. There are now for the first time in ages two Jewish families that have returned to the city.

Although there are no jewish people left, the Town Council has kept up the Museum of the History of the Jews. It is a beautifully maintained and well designed Museum. One leaves saddened, however, knowing that so many peoples lives ended in the 15th century after leaving such a great contribution to Spain's society.

A must-see to get an impression of how the Jews lived during the time of their oppression in Girona. The Jewish museum puts it all into interesting and very start context also.

This museum is a little jewel. Small, beautifully designed and fascinating. Good access to English and French speakers as well as Spanish and Catalan. Many of the exhibits are backlit for maximum effect. A much better curated and organised museum than the City History museum! Well worth a visit. PLEASE give this museum it's own entry!
