The museum is really well done and fascinating. The Jews have had a strong presence in Girona for hundreds of years. The staff knew a lot of information and were great to answer questions.

The Jewish Museum provided an interesting complement to the Town Museum which we had visited earlier and of course we got in half-price with our earlier tickets. Looking at the history of how a particular group of people was treated over 500 years ago makes...More
