  • Let me preface by mentioning as a Israeli Jew of Moroccan descent who was taught about the Rambam briefly in school, nothing in that museum was really new to me and I was kind of bored. But I think anyone who's not in my demographic may actually really enjoy this museum and I'd encourage you to go! Upon admission you get two laminated explanation pages in English since most explanations on the walls are in Spanish, which was kind of strange. If you're Israeli Jew or familiar in any way with Judaism or Jewish history, it's not going to enlighten you much - there's an entire wall dedicated to a brief explanation on each Jewish holiday, which just isn't interesting if you have prior knowledge.
  • This museum is a must to visit. Only after this can you understand what Sefarad was/is about. The guide is fantastic, the way he sings will surprise you and charm you. Don't expect the Louvre, this one is a different kind of magic.
