Lots to see in this museum, itself housed in a wonderful old mansion. The museum covers both religious and cultural subjects. Most interesting were the exhibits on the Jewish Diaspora in Africa and Asia. The only reason I didn't give this museum a five star...More

Trip Advisor clearly says it’s open on Monday. We made an effort to be at the entry on time just to find out the museum is closed on Mondays.
