The Jewish Museum of Ferrara

The Jewish Museum of Ferrara is housed in the heart of the city's medieval centre only a short distance from the Cathedral and next to the Castello Estense.

In the ancient palace in Via Mazzini ( formerly Via Sabbioni ) and which for centuries has been the focal point of Jewish life in the city of Ferrara, visitors to the Museum have access to three synagogues - two of which are still operative - on the upper floors of the building where four rooms have recently been created and which now house the permanent museum.

The Museum offers guided visits and itineraries especially devised for school groups. It has a room set aside for the viewing of films and a bookshop.

It is connected via the Internet to web sites of Jewish interest. A catalogue is available and an english version is currently being printed.
