Small museum but important and interesting. Odessa use to be a huge Jewish cultural center, and it is so interesting to learn about this community' past and current. In many ways Odessa still has a lot of Jewish influence in it. All exhibits are authentic,...More

The museum is located in a courtyard off of Nejinskaya Street. The entrance fee is a donation with a suggested minimum of 50 UAH. The woman who was working when I went was very nice and gave me a quick tour and explanation of Jewish...More

My grandfather was an Odessa Jew who left after the pogroms in 1905, so I really wanted to see this museum. It is small--still relatively new and hopefully growing. Most of the descriptions are in Russian, and the excellent guide we had read about who...More

There were a lot of artifacts however no descriptions or stories. Compared to other jewish museums, this just seemed like an old home with a few people wandering through.

Arranged like entering a Jewish home. A lot of different photos and tools from Jewish life in Odessa. Well worth a visit.

Really only historical Jewish site other than a few synagogue. This museum in a courtyard has very interesting artifacts, not just specifically Judaic items. Old typewriters and pictures. Should bra on your list.

I only learned about this museum from TripAdvisor and am so grateful that I did. Yes, I too had difficulty finding the building, despite having the address. I couldn't believe it would be where it was! As a Jew from Vancouver Canada, one of Odessa's...More

The museum is hard to find. It’s in a small, dilapidated courtyard. Just like the Jews in Russia or USSR - hidden away by authorities behind an ugly façade and surrounded by unfriendly (putting it mildly) neighbors. The museum is small and does not do...More
