I've never been treated so rudely. I came with a Venice pass but apparently did something incorrectly and was basically yelled at by the employee. I was interested in a guided tour and showed up at the scheduled time for a English tour but couldn't even take part in it as a was rudely just told to go in up the stairs without any explanation. Without a tour there is so little to see and really not worth a visit. Very little on the interesting history of the first ghetto is documented here and you are better off just googling it from home. Awful experience.
Well run, thorough museum. Exhibits are well designed and informative—highly recommend the tour of the three synagogues. It really helps place you within Venetian and Jewish history!
