The museum is filled with history and treasures that are not to be missed. The Grand Synagogue is spectacular ans the lecture/tour was wonderful. The small price of admission is well worth it. I highly recommend a visit to this wonderful place.

You find the museum in the Great Synagogue of Rome. There are a lot of valuable artifacts. You will find a Spanish Synagogue inside the Museum too. You can learn a lot about the life of the Jews during the Nazis.

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.

For 11 euro yoj get an audio guide to the meuseum in almost every language..and a tour of the great synagouge. A bit confusing at first but once you understand where the audio guide numbers are it all comes together.

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

I don't think you need to do anything special, perhaps bring an ID for security, and if you're Jewish bring your own Sefer & Kipa. It's a beautiful synagogue...good luck!
