“Impressive Museum with many artifacts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Liked the information available and the wooden design.
Now I know how a circumcision knife looked like a long time ago.

“Wonderful little museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

It was wonderful to see how Sephardic Jewish people lived many years ago. My grandparents were married at this former synagogue, and I was so grateful to find it still standing.

“Has a copy of the Haggadah”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This was a small museum in the Bascarsija. Most of the things in the museum were the same as what you've seen in other Jewish Museums throughout Europe, though this one does have a copy of the Haggadah that is in the National Museum, if you don't have the chance to make it out there and want to see it.

“Excellent peak into a lost way of life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The Jewish community was once strong in Sarajevo, and this is an excellent introduction to the life there in a beautiful old building.

“A must see in Sarajevo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Even though I am a local, I go to this place at least once a year. It is nice, clean, informative, the guide is great, and it is just a nice place for mediation and thinking about the history of Sarajevo and its Jews. If you are a foreigner, I recommend that you visit this place first as it is a nice "intro" into the multicultural visit of Sarajevo.
