Choose sunday! Because the owner will guide you in the visit. Increadible experience! He tells everything about the spanish-jewish history, culture... and music (he sings!) It will last around one hour and half. I recommend you to go and see the details of each room. I would like to have studied a little more to have explored his knowledge. After... More

The museum was small but bigger than the one in Sevilla. However the guide in Sevilla made that experience special. There was no guide in Córdoba. Also we went on a day when the synagogue was closed. Check their calendar and website.

Whether or not you have Jewish roots, come visit this small, quaint yet extremely informative museum on Spain and Córdoba's rich Jewish past. It's filled with art and artifacts (not from exactly pre-1492, but still beautiful) and a lovely courtyard. An incredibly interesting and precious space.

This museum is a nice respite on your way through Juderia. It's really an interesting museum and when you understand the history and the impact of it it is all the more important to see it. They have a lot of English explanations however it would be nice if it was complete.

Very nice welcoming, either in french or english. It's a short tour that won't take more than 30min. The place could do with more A/C units but it's bearable for 30min.

The man who greeted us was very helpful and spoke good English. He offered my mum (who does not speak Spanish) English pamphlets. The house is very interesting. Takes about an hour to look around. Focuses on the Jewish community and history of Córdoba. Particular emphasis on Maimonides and also the Inquisition. Definitely recommend it if you are planning on... More

This museum doesn't have a very extensive collection, but what it does have is well-organized,well-presented, and quite interesting. The staff is friendly and eager to help explain things. The more permanent areas have English descriptions, but the temporary exhibits do not. For those, staff hand out well-done and detailed information sheets.

It takes only about half hour to see it all. It has interesting information about the way the sefardi jews used to live.

We stumbled upon this place -- while wondering around the Jewish Quarter and decided to check it out. It's great (small) an hour maybe hour and half is at most all you need. We walked around, read the information found it fascinating. It has a great history of Jews in Spain all packed into this small space. I think its... More
