It is a small museum with large number of exhibits. Museum's location is not farfrom the Syntagma metro station. Highly recommended for anyone who wish to learn on the Jewish Spharadic communities in Greece.

A relatively small place but very well organized. Hear of the long history and the tragedy of WW2 with 90% of the Jewish population destroyed.

What a lovely museum. Well worth the time. Not always on the list of what to do in Athens but I suggest adding it. Staff is helpful and friendly and speak English perfectly.

Good visit, I was completely by myself so I could really read all documentation, and watch the movie (a bit long, 1h30!!) but very interesting and emotional. Interesting overall, especially about the figures and some cities' Jew communities who suffered during WWII.

Literally. The museum is hard to find, with the entrance hidden behind a small steel door at no. 39 Nikis street. Once you pass security, you enter the museum space. The museum itself is set out over 10 different levels, each one a small section...More

the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
