Although quite small, this museum gives a very comprehensive overview of ancient and particularly modern history of the Jews in Greece. It deals with the various communities, religious ritual and the Holocaust.

Much like the Jews of Rome, the Romaniote Jews are neither Sephardim (who came later) nor Ashkenzim, but Jews who trace their roots back to the Roman Empire. The museum is beautifully laid out over a number of floors, with clothing and books and religious...More

We spent 2 1/2 hours in this museum. We are very knowledgeable about Judaica, the rituals and Jewish law so we did not need to learn about life cycle events. Therefore we were more focused on the history and there was plenty of information. We...More

So the museum is not big, but seems it represents well the history of Jews in Greece with many items presented.

The clothes and everyday implements give this museum a home feeling. Sad, as are all Jewish museums in Europe, but that;s the way it is supposed to be.

are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
