A relatively small place but very well organized. Hear of the long history and the tragedy of WW2 with 90% of the Jewish population destroyed.

What a lovely museum. Well worth the time. Not always on the list of what to do in Athens but I suggest adding it. Staff is helpful and friendly and speak English perfectly.

The is a small but beautiful museum. It's very easy to miss as the only sign is a small plaque next to the door. The entrance itself looks like that of an apartment but once you pass security you enter a much more expansive space....More

Good visit, I was completely by myself so I could really read all documentation, and watch the movie (a bit long, 1h30!!) but very interesting and emotional. Interesting overall, especially about the figures and some cities' Jew communities who suffered during WWII.

Literally. The museum is hard to find, with the entrance hidden behind a small steel door at no. 39 Nikis street. Once you pass security, you enter the museum space. The museum itself is set out over 10 different levels, each one a small section...More

We find it nice to connect to the local Jewish community whenever we travel, and this is an excellent way to learn about the community of Athens and Greece. It has a small but representative collection of artifacts (Jewish ritual objects, books, clothing) from the...More

For those of us who know little about the Sfardic or Romaniot traditions or the history of the Jews of Greece during World war two, this is a beautiful museum with attractive displays. Enjoyed it immensely and bought CDs for the grandchildren.

I found the Jewish Museum of Greece by chance ( whilst walking through to Plaka from Syntagma Sq.) Was most impressed with the way historical Jewish artifacts of the Greek community were displayed. Of special note was the cinema which showed a documentary of the...More

Thank JulianManchesterUK
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
