“Was expecting more”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This is a house with some personal items from a collection point a view, but doesnt bring so much to a visitor.

“Very informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Make sure when there to take the time to speak with some of the staff who are very well informed and can share many stories and insight into the history of sefaradic jewery in spain and many modern day cultural customs whose roots are from the inquisition. Do not pass this up on any visit to Cordoba.

“Interesting and informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We came across this small museum after visiting the Great Cathedral and Mosque and found it to be well worth making a relatively short stop at this interesting house to take a look at the history and lifestyle of Sephardic Jews in the district. There were historical artefacts on display as well as information about the impact of the Inquisition on the community.

“A must if you're looking for Jewish history in Cordoba.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Small, but informative museum. The folks there were very helpful and knowledgeable, and willing to take the time to answer any questions. Small but nice shop. This is an old residence that was converted. Exhibits included info on the Inquisition's impact on the Jews of Cordoba and Andalusia, some historical personalities of international note, some poetry, women's roles, etc. Compact, but worth it (by comparison to tiny one room remaining synagogue nearby.)
