Very informative. Particularly enjoyable if interested in learning about the Jews in Rhodes. The museum is free but closes about 3pm. I found it facinating to learn about the Jews during World War !!. Tucked up an alley just behind the restaurants in the square in the old town.

Rhodes Jewish museum portrays a clear picture of the life of the Jewish people of the island prior to the removal into concentration camps that occurred in WW2. It has a collection of clothing, photographs, books and more. Worth a look.

We took a short walk from our cruise ship in November 2012 to this island and discovered this Jewish museum. Learned a bit of the history and culture of Jewish presence on this island. It is interesting to know that you can find scattered Jews even on an island like this one.

Jews and non Jews alike will take away a bit of history after visiting this synagogue and museum. It is in the Old City not far from everything else that you want to see. If you are coming by ship, it is a short walk from the port. Spend as much time as you want (at least an hour) and... More

It is as my title says making the effort to find and visit this Jewish Synagogue & Museum which is very hard to find. It can be found of one of the main shopping streets and a sign is on one wall but not on the other side. When you walk up this very narrow and old street you may... More

Despite being a bit tricky to find, it's well worth the visit. In the Old City there are 2 squares. One has a fountain, the other a black pillar - a memorial to the 1600 holocaust victims from Rhodes' Jewish community. It's off the 2nd square. There is a lovely Sephardi synagogue there and a museum about the history of... More

The synagogue and museum are very interesting and provide a good overview. Entry is free and the people there are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.
