The museum holds Judaica objects originating from the numerous and extinct communities in Libya’s main cities and hinterland villages.
The permanent exhibition consists of items of Libyan Jewish craftsmanship (gold, silver, copper, wood and leather objects for ritual or everyday purposes), documents, photographs and textiles.
A typical market of the Jewish quarter (hara) has been reconstructed in the lower hall. A remembrance hall lists the names of the victims of pogroms in the years 1945 to 1967 and documents the persecution of Libyan Jews under Fascist and Nazi rules. A gallery hosts art work by contemporary artists from the community.
