The historical, cultural and artistic heritage of Rome’s Jewish community is chronicled in this small but engrossing museum. Housed in the city's early-20th-century synagogue, Europe’s second largest, it displays parchments, precious fabrics, marble carvings, and a collection of 17th- and 18th-century silverware. Documents and photos attest to life in the Ghetto and the hardships suffered by the city's Jewish people during WWII. Admission also includes a guided tour of the main synagogue.
To learn more about the Jewish Ghetto, the museum runs hour-long tours (adult/reduced €8/5), bookable at the ticket office.
