For 10 euros you get a very nice guided tour of the synagogues and entrance to the museum. They had two parallel, one in Italian and one in English. All-in-all it's about an hour.

The museum is small and probably needs just over a half hour to see. The guided tour around 3 of the 5 synagogues in the ghetto (that also lasts just over 30 mins) is excellent. Well worth a visit. The ticket for both museum and synagogue tour is 10 euros.

This attraction should be on top of tourists' lists. We bought the 10 euros ticket which includes the entrance to the museum (really informative about the Jewish community of Venice) and the guided tour of three beautiful synagogues. The only disappointment was that our tour was conducted in Italian, although they tell you that you can have it either in... More

Would strongly recommend this to anyone visiting Venice. Take the organised tour that includes the synagogues and you will be rewarded with a fascinating insight into the history of the Jewish community in Venice and the development of the ghetto. The actual museum is small, but its focus on Jewish life and custom, rather than on the artefacts, makes it... More

The museum itself is small and has some interesting, yet limited, exhibits. The most fascinating aspect of our visit was the tour of the synagogues. The tour leaves every hour on the half-hour mark. When we were there, there were both an English language tour and an Italian language tour (each tour visits the synagogues in a different order, so... More

It's hard for me to separate the opportunity from the experience. The Jewish Ghetto is rich with history, and the community's growth and decline are fascinating. To imagine what is now a small population of 500 was once thousands of Jews with nearly a dozen synagogues, the multiple expulsions and strict regulations, is to come face to face with the... More

The museum has some of the items found in all Jewish museums around the world (religious objects, etc.), but it did have some artifacts that specifically reflect the history of the ghetto, and there was a decent presentation of the history of the community. The synagogue tour is worth taking, but take the explanations with a grain of salt -... More

Visit the Hebrew Museum in Venice is an important step to know and understand the whole town history as the relations between town governement and the jewish community had an important role, both by economic and political point of view. Visit to the four "scuole", means synagogues, show the differences among the groups in the community, as they born in... More

The first "ghetto." Very nice guided tour of the five (5) synagogues except the one in use for Sukkot. Interesting history. I should have remembered to bring a kippah.
