The Jewish Museum of Venice is not simply an expository space, but a widespread museum, i.e. an urban, architectonic and museum complex unique of its kind for its own specificity, which includes a permanent exhibition, the synagogues and some temporary exhibitions. The objects on display testify to the lively tradition and the long history of the Venetian community; among them you can find ancient books and manuscripts and objects used in the most important moments of the cycle of Jewish life. From the interior of the Museum it is possible to visit by guided tour two of the 5 Venetian synagogues. All guided tours to 3 or 4 of the five venetian synagogues start from the museum.
