This museum is hidden in a part of old town making it a must visit location. The synagogue alone is a wonderful place to visit, making the contents of this place true gems. Reading the history of the Jewish community in Rhodes was an important part of my trip; seeing the personal effects of the community was as fascinating as... More

Tucked away in a little side street this museum is worth a visit. It details the history of Jews on the island and names all those taken away in the holocaust. It's quite a moving experience to read all their names and view all the info in the museum. Recommended.

Small yet informative museum detailing the long history of Jewish life on the island, mostly cut short by the Holocaust in WWII. This and the adjacent synagogue are not-to-be-missed sites for tourists interesting in local Jewish history.

A must see if you are stopping through on a boat or if you are considering a place to be on the high holidays. A wonderful remnant community with big hearts!

This museum is perhaps the closest direct link to the evil of Nazism that I have witnessed. The visit begins with a walk into the ancient synagogue. Then you walk into a small courtyard whose main feature is very large metal sheets on a hinge which opens book-like, as you may see on a British rail platform with train times... More

This museum is sad and inspiring at the same time. Take some time to really read the personal stories and consider the plight of the people of this community.

This is one of the most charming museums I have ever visited. There are great costumes, religious artifacts and photos to tell the story of the Jewish Community of Rhodes. There is also a collection of painful documentation of the deportation of the community to Auschwitz-Birkenau in July 1944.
