The museum is tiny, and only contains religious items, so you learn nothing of the daily life of Jews in the Ghetto, which was more of an interest to me than the judaica. A few interesting antique books, a really tiny part dedicated to the...More

Besides the Museum being interesting, the indentations of hinges on the wall at the entrance to the ghetto, brought home how the Jews were herded into a small area and kept apart from other citizens.

Person selling tickets quite rude. Couldn't hear the guide as she did not have microphone. This desperately needed and problem so easy to overcome. Poorly presented with lack of care. Someone sat on a seat and the guide shrieked loudly at the couple involved. Better...More

Our cruise ship docked at 1pm in Venice and we were off to explore the Jewish Ghetto. One quick train ride and a nice walk brought us to the Ghetto. We stopped at Gam Gam Restaurant for lunch and then continued on to the Jewish...More

The museum has a nice little collection but it's the tour of the synagogues that brings this to life. We learned a lot we didn't know including the origin of the word ghetto. Definitely worth seeing another side of Venetian history.

The Jewish museum itself very small but has good information and lovely exhibits. I was particularly interested in the history of the Jews in Venice and WW2 and how it effected the community. We paid €12 each for the 3 x synagogue visits which we...More

The museum itself would be incomplete without doing a tour of the Synagogues inside and around the Ghetto itself.

Cannaregio
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
