Very interesting museum, a beautiful building and the lady in charge was lovely. It was good to hear a different perspective from the version our tour guide had given us.
The museum is open every day (except Saturday)
You have to knock and show photo ID . Take a photo of your passport..

This former synagogue has been converted into a museum of the Romanian Jewish community. There are interesting exhibits, including a school room and an art exhibition. Well worth a visit.

Was a pleasure to visit the Jewish museum of Bucharest! It is in an old synagogue that has magic by itself. A beautiful mix of art, history, antiques and a lot of learning. 100 recommended if u are interested in Jewish history! =]

This synagogue, no longer used for religious services, has been converted into the museum of the Romanian Jewish experience. It is well done and informative, and the visitor learns a lot about a world, alas, long gone.

The museum is inside an old synagogue that is no longer in use as a place of prayer. Along the walls is a history of the Romanian Jewish community, A lot of it is blown up copies of newspapers and letters. some is translated into English, but most is not, but it still is possible to understand from the photographs and the brief summaries in English

For the first time you have in Bucharest a museum - belonging to the FEDROM, the Federation of Jewish Communities of Romania - that shows you not only dry historical facts but also artefacts and paintings from the pinacoteque of the above-mentioned federation, exposing to all visitors both the important contribution of Jewish personalities to the cultural life of Romania, but also figments of actual Jewish life in the pst and in the present. Tia Peltz, Marcel Iancu, Maxy, Brauner ... just some of the important names waiting to be discovered on the first floor.

The Synagogue turned museum was a bit tricky to find, but worth it. The guard and custodians were very nice and welcoming. There are a plethora of historical photos and religious items to look at. Keep in mind that the museum consists of two floors, the upper floor being what used to be the women's balcony. The architecture and artwork of the synagogue itself were very nice to look at.
