Summary

“The Ghetto of Venice sits at a nexus of world history for Venice, Europe, and Jewish culture as a whole. It needs to be saved, its story told.” -Joseph J. Sitt (Chairman). From high quality exhibits overflowing with the rich history of the Jews in Venice, to hosting three exquisite, ancient synagogues dating to nearly half a millennium ago, the Jewish Museum of Venice tells the story of this historic region in a captivating manner. Located within the original Jewish Ghetto, visiting this museum is both engrossing and educational.

General Information

Thanks to the Restoration Project for the Jewish Museum and Synagogues, this special place will be revamped! Renovations will both modernize and expand the facilities, allowing recently discovered artifacts and treasures to go on display for the public, including 'Treasures of the Jewish Ghetto of Venice'. The two doors at the end of the entrance way lead to restrooms on one side, which will be remodeled with the addition of a bag check room and toilets for disabled visitors and for museum staff."
