Museo Sefardí was created by Royal Decree in 1964 and is housed in a historical building, the synagogue of Samuel ha-Leví, in the Jewish Quarter in Toledo. In 1968 it was officially named “The National Museum for Hispanic-Hebraic Art”. It is a national museum, which preserves the Hispanic-Hebraic legacy and is governed by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
The changing needs of the museum required the building to undergo renovation between 1984 and 1994. In 2001 there was another significant renovation programme of the building, which led to its reopening on 17th November 2004 by HRH the Prince of Asturias.
In the past few years, the museum has mainly focused on facilitating access to those visitors with disabilities. We have also introduced new ways of communicating with our visitors and have made the museum in to a web 2.0 space.
