Housed in four former synagogues this museum will tell and show you everything you wanted to know about Jewish history, culture and rituals. The amazing collection on display covers religious, everyday items, clothing and textiles, paintings and photos and is apparently only a small selection of the 13 or 14,000 pieces that make up the total collection. The museum is divided into a number of sections making it easy to digest one chunk before moving to the next bit. Believe me what is on display is impossible to review concisely since there are so many pieces. If you're interested or just curious about anything Jewish, then visit this museum. Its terrific!!!
It also has changing special exhibitions on various topics.
My visit was 1½ hours, I had to leave because it was closing and wished I could have stayed longer. If you want to see everything here allow 2-3 hours. Pick up an audio guide for additional information.
Photos OK but no flash.
