Manchester Jewish Museum

Manchester Jewish Museum


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. The Museum is a registered charity (Registered Charity No. 508278).
It is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture, executed in Moorish style. Particularly noteworthy are the splendid stained glass windows and the distinctive cast-iron fitments. 

Following a £6 million redevelopment our new museum includes a new gallery, café, shop and learning studio and kitchen as well as complete restoration of our stunning Spanish and Portuguese synagogue.

We are open seven days a week and tickets for general admission are on sale for timed entries and can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance. Our museum can be busy on weekdays when we often have schools visiting. If you would like a more peaceful visit we would recommend visiting at weekends or after 2.30pm.
