This synagogue is now a museum and contains lots of artefacts from Jewish life positioned with some details around life events. The synagogue was destroyed in the 1500s and rebuilt in the Italian style. I found the museum to be quite traditional in its format,...More

The Old Synagoue houses the Jewish museum showing history of the Polish Jews. The interior itself is quite interesting, as are the numerous pictures and artefacts.
