Free entry for Pensioners on production of identity card(driving license). History of the synagogue and Judaism. Several video clips showing Jewish festivals and a lot of artifacts donated to the museum. We spent more than an hour here.

You don't need a ton of time. Make sure you get there when they do a tour in English otherwise you are on your own with a laminated card.
