Small and charming museum in the old synagogue's building. We stumbled upon it on accident and decided to visit & didn't regret it. I wish there was more to see though :)

Small and cozy museum that some days are free of charge, see the Web page. If you as I studied a lot about WWII it might be a bit repetarive but on the good side it has a lot of info about the Swedish involvement and attitude over centurys. Good for both non Swedish speakers and has audio. A place to respect. Giftshop is very small but cute. Prices are not very cheap but not expensive either.

I have learned a lot regarding the history of Jews in Sweden from the 11th century until today. Daniel did a great job during his guided tour, mentioning the tremendous jewish contribution that has been brought to swedish society.

This is not "your" typical Jewish museum, and for all the good reasons. It's small and one gets the feeling that it's not too educational or didactic or overbearing in the best possible way. This museum is about a small community finding it's way in an alien place, and while the Jewish aspect is at the core, the message is human and universal. There was someone to answer any questions and willing to engage in conversation. An eye opening museum that can benefit locals, tourists and the curious

This newly opened Jewish Museum in Old Town is on the original sight of the first synagogue in Stockholm. The excellent guide told (with animation and great story-telling skills) the fascinating story of Jewish life beginning in the 1700s. His narration is about 45 minutes but make sure to leave time to see the many artifacts - including the preserved bimah. Don't miss it!

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
