This Museum gets better every time. Beautiful costumes, religious artifacts and photos, the museum tells the story of the special Sephardic Jewish community in Greece. If you are lucky to have Isaac Habib as your guide, you will be in for a treat.

Thank you very much for your nice comments. The purpose of our museum is to make known, even to our non-Jewish visitors, our history and with your comments we feel that we succeeded that.

Beautifully maintained place. Contributes to comprehend the tragedy of European Jewish history in the 20th century, almost nothing left of the great Jewish community after the 2nd World war.More

Tour is not necessary. You can ask the people who work there about the history and they are more than willing to explain
