Located in the monumental building of the great synagogue, this museum was opened in 1960. Exhibiting the collection of the Jewish community of Rome, the museum displays silverware from 17th and 18th century, precious textiles, parchments and marble carvings that are preserved from the time when the five synagogues from the ghetto were destroyed.
The museum also focuses on the relation of Jewish community to Rome, their customs, traditions, culture, holidays and their 2000 year old history in the city.
Spread over seven exhibition areas, the museum visit also includes the tour of the garden with gallery of ancient marbles, and the two synagogues- Great and Spanish.
- Guided tours are available.

This Jewish Museum is different from the one in Los Angeles. The history covered here dates back to the beginnings of Jews coming to build Rome and not just history from the 1930's to present day. If you want to see the legacy of the Jewish people in Europe over millennia this is IT. However be prepared since Jewish history has many tragedies. This Museum is for the experienced tourist. One block away is a wonderful Jewish Bakery (serves Jewish Pizza - tastes like a fruitcake) that takes the Edge off.
Incredibly beautiful Synogouge. We attended the tour/talk which was very interesting. Great selection of kosher restaurants in the nearby neighborhood.
The museum is the only way to casually visit the synagogue (as far as I know), and consists of several large rooms containing mostly traditional Jewish items and maps and plans of the Jewish Ghetto. Some of the museum is dedicated to Jewish tradition (which will not be new to anyone practicing that tradition), while some is dedicated to the ghetto and its history, and the history of Roman Jews. If that's the kind of thing you're interested in, go for it, and don't miss the tour.
Joined the walking tour, which was very informative about what the area was like. As it has been over built, you need to use your imagination to perceive what it used to be like. Enjoyed this insight into life past As it's a small area, can be difficult to locate, even using google maps. With a little patience, finally found it
Another impressive piece... Nice to walk around the!"Jewish ghetto" and experience the food and culture.
