The museum occupying a few rooms on the ground floor of the synagogue is small but the entry ticket of €13 includes the tour of the synagogue.

A very interesting and well detailed museum for Jews and non-Jews, outlining the history of the Roman ghetto and the modern day Jewish community.

The museum was very interesting with many unknown historical facts. There were many interesting pieces even though the museum is small. The synagogue was amazing but don't expect an ancient synagogue. Worth the visit.

The Jewish Museum and synagogue are a wonderful collection of artefacts and a very different place of worship to the myriad of churches in Rome. The community has been here for over 2000 years and the history is fascinating. Hard to recommend this strongly enough.

The building was constructed adjacent to the ancient ghetto and along the Tiber River. Building started in 1901 and the Synagogue opened in 1904. Services are conducted in the "orthodox" tradition. The sanctuary is resplendent, sparkling with golden adornments, marble columns and mosaics. Candelabra, menorah...More

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
