    Much improved recently, apparently, I enjoyed seeing stuff I would otherwise know little about. Helpers are available for guided tours and give useful information.

    This place is stunning. It has a very modern, spacious and has fantastic artifacts. Make sure to go up to the shul. Its said to be the oldest shul still in operation in the world.

    One of the better Jewish museums I’ve ever been to. A detailed and engaging account of the history of Jews in Rome, in an absolutely beautiful synagogue.

    The synagogue is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. It is unfortunate that the women‘s section is closed off to the public. The museum itself was a little underwhelming, but some artefacts are quite impressive. Why is there just one tiny cubicle for the ladies‘ toilet, while the men have four times as much space? The gender inequality seems to have spilled from the religious space into the secular one.

    Expensive to get to go inside a synagogue. Have to book a private tour to see sephardic synagogues.

    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

    The museum is interesting (specially if you have a Jewish root) , but 11 EUR for full ticket is a lot (the price for students is 5 EUR). The ticket is a guided tour included and they showed us the synagogue (but we didn't go to the second floor which I really wanted to see). Compared to 8 EUR that people pay at Vatican to go all the way up, it was expensive. Also audio guide was included (+1) I would donate more than 11 EUR if the entrance was free ;)
