This is part of the El Transito Synagogue which is well worth a visit. There are some interesting items here but there is little to no explanation in English. I feel this could be an excellent museum if they updated it a bit and had...More

This is an extraordinary building with excellent exhibits. We visted 2 years ago, but it was definitely worth a second visit.

Nice collection with some rare artifacts. I loved it and recommend you to visit it. It is not a whole day inside a building just an hour most but it is worth it.

This is a decent museum that is a part of El Transito Synagogue. The explanations are only in Spanish, but you can figure out what things are. The building is really beautiful.

One of the few places in Spain where somehow some jewish signs survived and have recovered part of the rich jewish culture that existed before 1492 (inquisition). Lots of displays explaining the history of Jewish life.

This is only a small museum but it's neatly laid out. There's not really that much left of the old Jewish quarter in Toledo and like much of the old architecture of the time, both Christian Churches and Jewish synagogues were influenced by Moorish designs,...More

This was a very complete and well-documented museum...benefiting from its focus and the importance of this chapter of Toledan history. Definitely take the audio-guide and enjoy the ability to go deep if you want. Fabulous documents, textiles -- a wide range of types of objects...More

Concentrating on the history of the Jewish people in Toledo with an exhibit on the inquisition, the museum is well laid out and educational with boring.

Walk through in 30 minuts. All displays in Spanish, so you want to consider an audio guide, or a guided tour. 2,50€ entrance fee.
