MJM is for Jewish and non-Jewish people offering a unique experience as both a social history museum and as a resource for learning.
We tell the story of Manchester’s Jewish community from the 1780s to present day- exploring the cultural and religious evolution of Manchester’s Jewish community. Our galleries reveal the political and industrial legacies of this community on a local, regional, national and international scale.
This is the only UK museum housed inside an original synagogue and, built in 1874, it is Manchester’s oldest surviving synagogue. Through this spectacular Grade II* listed building and through displays, exhibitions and events, MJM offers an experience that will inspire, inform and educate everyone.
