Jewish museums across the world come in all shapes and sizes. This one is small but perfectly formed. The layout and the way the visitor is guided through each room is excellent and very informative, starting from early history through to the modern age. The...More

In-depth look at the history of the Roman Jewish community, which pre-dates the Ashkenazi-Sephardi split. My kids were fascinated by this museum and didn't want to leave. The exhibits clearly document the history of this long-enduring community, showing how they coped and thrived throughout the...More

We very much enjoyed the museum and the synagogue. However, we cannot say the same for the museum's gift shop. We purchased a Murano glass bowl which the staff sealed in a box so we could safely transport it. When we arrived home we found...More

We spent half a day visiting the synagogue and touring the museum well as what remains of the ghetto. The synagogue tour was brief but we found the docents to be most helpful and willing to answer questions. The museum with the accompanying audioguide was...More

We went with a tour guide and there was certainly more to see. We were privy to the Grand Synagogue which is one of the most beautiful in the Diaspora but the museum itself is also incredible and a must-see for Jewish visitors of Rome....More

The synagogouge is in fact open to the public at prayer times; ~730 - 830 am, and ~820 - 9 pm in the summer (the latter times are inclined to change with season and are roughly an hour before dusk, or sunset). One who wishes...More

The fact that it is in the "Jewish Ghetto" tells you a lot about the history. This is a beautiful old ornate synagogue. It is still active, as there was a wedding there when I was visiting. The museum is amazing. I particularly enjoyed seeing...More

Ghetto
The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the

Sorry for the late reply. As others already explained, we walked into the museum/synagogue and joined the tours in the front office, which is also a souvenir shop.

There is a tour of the Jewish qr, I don’t remember the price but as far as I remember it wasn’t expensive. You need to get a ticket for that tour separately.

I don't think you need to do anything special, perhaps bring an ID for security, and if you're Jewish bring your own Sefer & Kipa. It's a beautiful synagogue...good luck!
