The Jewish Museum of Rome, located in the monumental building of the Great Synagogue, was opened in 1960 to display the collections of the Jewish Community of Rome: Roman silverware from the 17th and 18th century, precious textiles from all over Europe, miniated parchments and marble carvings saved when the Cinque Scole, the five synagogues of the Ghetto, were demolished.

The Museum is a unique place to discover the traditions, religion and history of the Roman Jewry, one of the oldest Jewish Communities of the world.
