Serious restoration work is being done ind the Synagogue/museum. We could not see any arifacts, but we managed to steal a glimpse on the fantastic work being done by the group of restorators. I look forward to see the finished work in my next visit. Some photos I made are promising!

Built in 1836 this beautiful synagogue is hidden in the back of Unirii Sqaure. Is under renovation but the exterior is ready.

I by no means intend to condemn this site, as I believe that it is very important for everyone to visit it, to learn about the tragic fate of fifty percent of Rumania's Jewish population; however one can see that the lack of funding and the proclivity of the government to ignore and even reject its involvement in the genocide...

I t was harrowingly photographed but necessary. There was just one person present who spoke English and without her, it would have impossible as all the accompanying text was written in Romanian. I hope they get funds to translate when they move back to their renovated home.

A worthy tribute to the hundreds of thousands of Romanian Jews murdered by Nazi Germany and its followers. A must-see. Never forget.

I was very much looking forward to seeing the museum, however the security guard wouldn't let me in the gate, though I was there during visiting hours as posted on the gate. I tried emailing and calling the office over the 8 days of my stay but have had no success in getting a response. I plan to return to... More

When I got to the museum I saw a sign with the opening hours and noticed that it was already too late. However, the door was still opened and I saw some people inside the synagogue so I asked myself: "Why not just go and ask if I can visit the museum, there might still be a chance?". So I... More

The building is hidden behind the blocks and you only see how spectacular it is when you get in front of the gate. The decorations are very beautiful and the inside is breathtaking. The golden ceiling and the solemnity of the temple create an unique setting for a museum. The images and the stories that they tell are very sad... More
