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.

We did not initially plan on taking time from our one day in Athens to go to (another) Jewish museum. However, we were very glad we did. This small but well designed museum features items and history with which we were unfamiliar. It is focussed...More

Great little museum about the history and culture of Jews in Greece. Includes components of old synagogues, discussion and origins of Greek Jews, and their lives both before and during WW2 and of the non-Jews who helped save some. The entrance is a solid metal...More

It is a small museum with large number of exhibits. Museum's location is not farfrom the Syntagma metro station. Highly recommended for anyone who wish to learn on the Jewish Spharadic communities in Greece.

A relatively small place but very well organized. Hear of the long history and the tragedy of WW2 with 90% of the Jewish population destroyed.

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
