It's a small museum (and still a synagogue that functions only on holidays) that tells the story of a Jewish community that was once a refuge for Jews fleeing the Spanish Inquisition. One of the exhibits is a letter about Dona Gracia Mendes, at the...More

Tiny space, in and out in 5 minutes. No explanations or guidance to the meagre exhibits. With all due respect this should not be pushed as a tourist attraction. Expensive. Don't bother.

A very small museum and active synagogue on a small street off the main drag. Given the size of the congregation (45 people), they do an excellent job of maintaining the historical artifacts and the synagogue itself. Definitely worth the trip to see how Judaism...More

This synagogue is the oldest Sefardic synagogue still in use today in the world and is the second oldest in Europe. Entrance fee was 50 kunar (£5) each. Although still used as a place of worship for Holy days and special occasions, the synagogue is...More

By a stroke of luck we arrived today (19th September) and were told the museum and synagogue were both free today only. This is due to a Jewish holiday. The place was nice and I’m glad we had a look around but I have to...More

This synagogue is, I believe, the second oldest in the Balkans. Dubrovnik apparently welcomed many of the Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain in 1492. The interior is quite atmospheric, with its heavy brass lamps and blue ceiling dotted with stars. The synagogue itself is on...More

So pleased we were able to see this tiny but beautiful synagogue built for the community which comprised of expelled Spanish Jews. Largest community at any one time was only 300 or so. There are 45 Jews left in Dubrovnik now. Lovely museum of antique...More

The synagogue itself is really only just the prayer hall, the museum is more interesting but only had items on display and lacks some more explanations about the history of the local Jewish community.

The guide was very informative and answered our questions. It’s the second oldest synagogue in Europe.

There are many places to see and visit in the beautiful town of Dubrovnik but this is one not to be missed.

With all respect to religious beliefs, it's not suitable to general public. We paid 50 kunas each to see 2 small rooms and one tiny synagogue. It's not worth the time.
