This is one of the worst museums I've ever been to. You might want to think it's because I'm anti-Semitic, but this museum is just confused, poorly-curated, and mismanaged, with audio and video displays that are, at best, barely functional. The temple itself is lovely,...More

The Jewish Museum in Rome gives a great historical look at Rome’s ancient Jewish community, life in the Jewish Ghetto, and life during the fascist period. The artifacts are amazing and the synagogue is an impressive blend of Jewish themes with art-deco and Roman styles....More

When you visit the Museo Ebraico di Roma, you get a fine introduction to the living of jews in Rome for the last 2000 years.

The museum isn’t very big but has a nice selection of artifacts and the guided tour of the beautiful synagogue was definitely worth it. It is located in the ghetto and there are a few kosher restaurants nearby. The museum shop also had a nice...More

The museum was a lot smaller than we expected, having seen a lot of Jewish museums in Europe or the US. It will only take you some 30 minutes max. The entry comes with a guided tour and we had an excellent young man trying...More

Emperor Titus conquered Jerusalem in 70 AD and brought back Jewish slaves. These resilient people have survived and thrived for centuries in Rome. The architecture of their synagogue tells a beautiful story. The ceiling is painted with blue stars to symbolize the promise to Abraham...More

I thought the museum was well done and very informative. However, the people at the security check at the entrance were fairly rude -- they made no attempt to communicate what they wanted, they just sort of waved their arms around, so it was unclear...More

Sorry for the late reply. As others already explained, we walked into the museum/synagogue and joined the tours in the front office, which is also a souvenir shop.

There is a tour of the Jewish qr, I don’t remember the price but as far as I remember it wasn’t expensive. You need to get a ticket for that tour separately.
