The Jewish Museum of Greece

I. Permanent Exhibition


The unique collection of the Jewish Museum of Greece includes more than 8,000 objects, the oldest of which are textiles and ante nuptial contracts from the 16th century C.E. Clothes and household items comprise the core of the Museum’s ethnographical character and offer a vivid picture of everyday life in the Greek Jewish communities from the mid-18th until the 20th century.


The exhibits are organised in thematic units, starting from the ground floor and taking advantage of the architectural dispensation of the interior. Every unit has its own display case -or cases- and covers a specific subject, relating to history, the cycle of time and human life.
