The Jewish Museum of Venice can be found in the Campo of the Ghetto Novo, between the two most ancient Venetian synagogues. It is a small but very rich museum founded in 1953 by the Jewish Community of Venice.
The precious objects on show include important examples of goldsmith and textile manufacturing from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The museum also offers a wide selection of ancient books and manuscripts and some objects used in the most important moments of the cycle of civil and religious life.
There is a tour of the synagogues in the Ghetto which starts at the museum.
