Directions to Jewish Museum of Greece

The Jewish Museum in Athens first opened its doors in 1977. It aims to create an archive for Jewish materials and artefacts collected across the past 2000 years of Jewish existence. The Jewish community in Greece has a rich history and this is celebrated by this museum. It is the perfect way to gain a better understanding of a culturally integral part of Greek society. It is a truly insightful and interesting day out.

The museum has a permanent exhibition space as well as temporary events, which highlight specific elements of Jewish life such as domestic and religious roles. There is also a research library and educational space for those doing studies on Jewish history and culture. The museum also carries out extensive conservation at laboratories connected to the museum, so the museum is on the frontier of expanding understanding and knowledge of the Jewish past.

The museum is within walking distance to all of the major attractions. It is about five minutes downhill from the Acropolis, so is a perfect way to spend an afternoon out of the sunshine once you have finished looking at the ruins. The restaurants on site all serve Kosher foods in keeping with the reverence for Jewish culture and religious beliefs. It is quite uncommon to find Kosher food in Athens as there is only a population of approximately 5000 Jewish people in the city, so this is a great retreat if you are searching for food.
