All museums are similar to some extent. Often it is a collection of items united by one theme, lying on display behind the glass. You cannot say the same about our museum. It is different. It is interactive. It is difficult to say what it resembles...more

.From the opening film to the very end, the story is horrific but the way it is told is amazing. Modern museum technology. Could have spent more time in there. Also lunch in there was very good.

This is one of the best museums and centres I have ever seen - and I have seen a lot. The Tolerance centre provides information on relationships, tolerance, medical advice and many other subjects. The museum provides an excellent summary of Jewish history and persecution...More

I have been to Jewish museums all over the worls in every continent. This is the best in my opinion. The use of the multi-media enahnces the experience. You can do the museum in chronological order, with TV's clicking on biographies indispersed throughout the museum...More

Large space organized eclectically around themes: Jewish history, Soviet/Russian Jewish history, Tolerance, etc. The highlight (running through September) was the Vladimir Vysotsky special exhibit coupled with his music. Quite interesting for those of us with Eastern European roots.

Well put together history of the Jewish experience in Russia from the 1800's Stetl's thru Perastroika in the 1980's. Very technologically put together with interactive displays. Only gap is that it didn't have audio guides and signage is mainly in Russian

If you can get a museum guide to take you through the museum that would be best. That was how I experienced the museum as part of my tour of Moscow. But you can also take it all in on your own. I have been...More

Having only recently visited the Polin Museum in Warsaw we expected something similar. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The museum has quite a lot of multimedia effects but actually shows very little. In addition most of the information is only written in Russian!

The creators of this museum really splashed out for the latest and greatest, and it shows. The introductory presentation takes you through the highlights of the Old Testament, complete with 3-D effects, moving seats, wind and sprinkles of rain, and locusts (ok, not real locusts)....More

Maryina Roshcha (Jewish Quarter)
It’s impossible to visit the Jewish Quarter and not go
to the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center – all roads
lead here. After visiting the most innovative museum
in Russia, cross the street to taste some delicious
kosher food. When you’ve tried the best hummus in
Moscow, explore early Soviet architecture by going to
the Theater of the Russian army and take a rest in
Ekaterininsky Park where boats and ducks keep everyone
