As others have written, this private, small museum is very difficult to find. (Start with the website at: www.migdal.ru). We asked many people, including tour guides and people at the Main Synagogue, and no one gave us correct directions. Start by asking for Nezhinskaya Street,...More

Interesting to see the museum however, on western standards it is poor. Considering the pre war Jewish population and their contribution to the city,it is disappointing.

I visited the Jewish Museum of Odessa on my final day in the city. I am so glad did! I looked for the museum the day before and couldn’t find it, I was sad that I would leave Odessa without seeing it. It is full...More

As my grandfather was a Jewish emigre from Odessa, this museum was on my to-do list. It is small, only 4 rooms, and is a bit hard to find. That said, the woman who guided us was thoroughly knowledgeable and extremely nice. She went room...More

Small museum but important and interesting. Odessa use to be a huge Jewish cultural center, and it is so interesting to learn about this community' past and current. In many ways Odessa still has a lot of Jewish influence in it. All exhibits are authentic,...More

My grandfather was an Odessa Jew who left after the pogroms in 1905, so I really wanted to see this museum. It is small--still relatively new and hopefully growing. Most of the descriptions are in Russian, and the excellent guide we had read about who...More

There were a lot of artifacts however no descriptions or stories. Compared to other jewish museums, this just seemed like an old home with a few people wandering through.

The Museum, which is housed in a typical Odessan old apartment, underscores the importance the Jewish community played in the history and achievements of the city. In the 1920's, almost half of the population was Jewish and it built and owned a vast majority of...More

Arranged like entering a Jewish home. A lot of different photos and tools from Jewish life in Odessa. Well worth a visit.

this is tucked away in a courtyard so look for the correct address before you look for the entrance. some artifacts sort of jumbled together, not much english translation but even so there does not seem to be much 'there' there.

Really only historical Jewish site other than a few synagogue. This museum in a courtyard has very interesting artifacts, not just specifically Judaic items. Old typewriters and pictures. Should bra on your list.
