We found this place almost by accident after we had visited the Synagogue. As a Jew, I found it gave me a fascinating look at medieval Jewish life in Cordoba, and my husband (not Jewish) found it equally captivating. We saw many items and pictures that gave us a good idea of the lives of Sefardic Jews of the period.... More

I regularly visit sites and museums of Jewish interest in my travels, and my recent tour of Andalusia was no exception. Out of the 4 museums I visited, this was the only one I can really recommend. Cordoba, of course, has an advantage over other towns in the region in terms of Jewish history. Not only does it have the... More

This is a nice Museum of Jewish history in Cordoba with emphasis on the RAMBAM. I enjoyed it a lot. It ua compact and efficient and right across from the old synagogue and very close to the statue of the Rambam so if you're in the area go.

Pathetic. If you are Jewish you might be offended (as I was) by the glib, uneducated "tour" that provided nothing of insight into incredible golden age that was in Spain before the Inquisition. I guess the Inquisition really did an excellent job of wiping out the whole culture, because the Spanish "guide" really had no clue. This "museum" delivers nothing... More

Attracted by the known Salafist music, we enjoyed the compact but well informing museum in a 14th century home.

This is a small but incredibly detailed museum that offered beautiful insights into Sephardi language, history, religion, and culture - as well as the persecution they faced in medieval and early modern Spain. I took a real interest in the Jewish history of Andalucía and visted a lot of sights relating to that subject in my travels. This was, hands-down,... More

This modest museum splits its emphasis between depicting the life of Maimonides, one of Judaism's great theologians and physicians of the 12th century, and the everyday life of the Spanish Jewish community. Well-depicted exhibits of the Jewish Community's role in the area's prosperity, as well as the Inquisition which brought their presence to an end. Many of the customs from... More

We came across this gem of a museum whilst we were taking a walking tour of Cordoba and decided to have a look. The museum is devoted in the main to the life of Rabbi Moses ben Maimon (Maimonides) who lived in Cordoba in the 12th Century. There is a fascinating history of him alongside one of the synagogue (which... More

Tiny, but very well done museum as a tribute to the Jewish community that long vanished. Situated in a beautiful setting around a courtyard. It gives a lot of information about the subject, with a special focus on my favorite Jewish thinker Maimonides, so I really enjoyed it.
