Jewish Museum of Venice

The Jewish Museum of Venice is not only a museum, but also an urban and architectural museum complex, unique in its specificity.

Its Jewish religious and administrative institutions are still active today as are the five synagogues founded between the XVI and XVII centuries by diverse ethnic groups in the city.

Book a guided tour to visit three of the five ancient synagogues disseminated between the Old and the New Ghetto.

Inside the museum you can visit a Sukkah, a tabernacle built in 1821 for the “Feast of Booths”, and “Alef, la libreria del Ghetto” (Alef, the Jewish Ghetto Bookshop), the best-stocked specialized Jewish bookstore in Italy.

The ‘Monuments to the Holocaust’ by Arbit Blatas, dedicated to the victims of the Shoah, may be admired in the square.
