Manchester Jewish Museum is a place to experience and explore how we are different, together.
Our museum opened in 1984 and is housed in a Grade II* listed (former) synagogue in Cheetham Hill, one of the most diverse areas in Manchester.
We hold over 31,000 items in our collection, documenting the story of Jewish migration and settlement in Manchester. The collection is considered by historians to be of national and international significance and our synagogue has been described by Historic England as “one of the highlights of Victorian Gothic architecture in the country”.
We make connections to make things better.
