Manchester Jewish Museum is located in a former Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue on Cheetham Hill Road. It is the only Jewish Museum outside London and is housed in the oldest surviving synagogue building in Manchester, completed in 1874.
With a compelling history to tell, the building needed a new purpose and in 1984 it re-opened as a Museum. The Museum now chronicles the lives of Jewish people in Manchester and their contribution to making the city what it is today. The former ladies gallery houses the Museums permanent displays, in which the history of Manchesters Jewish community is vividly brought to life.
The Museum now offers a unique learning programme for schools, colleges and other organisations and hosts an exciting exhibition & events programme.
