This is well worth the visit. The museum is very small, but interesting, However, it is the tour that is very interesting. It lasts about 40 minutes and you visit 3 very different synagogues in the ghetto. The guide was very knowledgeable, but very abrupt...More

We wandered around this area before visiting the museum and then once we had bought our tickets we waited for the tour. This takes in 3 of the 5 synagogues so you will see much more and learn more of the history of the area....More

We wanted to visit the old synagogues in the ghetto and the only way to do so was to book a museum and synagogue tour for 12 euros/person. The museum isn’t very big and many of the displays had very minimal descriptions and poor lighting....More

The museum is great. But the only way to see three of the five remaining synagogues in Venice and learn about the campo is through a tour. Each synagogue is a jewel and represents a different Jewish community.

The museum and synagogue tour are very good. They provide a great historical account of the Jewish community in Venice and the various different sects Judism that populated Venice. The tour of the different synagogues highlights these differences. Strongly recommend.

We visited in Seotember. Very small museum but everything in English. Very interesting history of Jewish life in Venice and renaissance Europe. Stunningly impressed with the level of security to enter which is understandable. Would have liked to have gone into the synagogue but guide...More

Very rude guide. For 7 euros per person I would expect him to be more respectful when talking to people. The security at the entrance is way to much for the very few rooms and exhibits they have inside. Overall a very small, boring museum...More

It’s definitely worth paying the extra €2 to get the tour of the synagogues. They are fascinating. Our tour was led by Silvia, who was very knowledgeable and dealt with a wide range of questions very skilfully and with humour. She also told the story...More

Firstly, I am Jewish, so this review is coming from that perspective. We visited the museum in the morning, and it was sort of .... boring. It didn’t have the appeal of most museums, it was sort of like a library, but you didn’t read...More

Not that big of a museum but very nice to learn about the history of the Jewish culture. My wife got to see more of what her ancestors went through to get freedom and see few artifacts

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

The museum costs money. The tour of the synogogue is included in the admission price and is the only way to see the synogogue other than attending services. I don't know the answers to your other questions

When you buy your ticket online it includes the tour and when you come with your voucher you ask for the English speaking tour. No problem
