The museum is located in the side rooms of the sinagogue which is quite an experience. It tells the history of the Jewish communities Romani & Sephradites until their extinction by the Italians and Germans in WWII.

This is a very nice and comprehensive museum about the long history of Jewish people in Rhodes. You can also visit a real synagogue. People there are very friendly and ready to explain. Entrance is free.

As an Italian I found it very interesting to see all the Italian documents of WWII especially since the Italian government sent it's own citizens to the slaughter. Definitely somehting to watch, it is not very big and it's free so it is something that is very easy to see inside Rhodes Old Town.

Thank you for your comment! Unfortunately what we can offer is what you said ,a glimse of history. The Jewish community in Rhodes is from the oldest communities with so much history which is difficult to fully share it with the rest of the world. More

A small place, not known to everyone, a magical place to remind us all of the big Jewish community which was murdered by the Nazis during WWII.

Beautifully done. I was so impressed. We just walked by without expectations and so glad we stopped in. Talked about the holocaust and other heavy topics in a tasteful way.

Beautifully maintained. Free entry into both the Synagogue and museum. A gorgeous old 16th century Torah. Many photos and artefacts and lovely little shop. Such a proud but tragic history.
