Let Culture Set You Free

We are proud to be part of Manchester’s world-renowned culture scene. A city of artists, museums, galleries, theatres, music venues and spaces for making. Welcome back Manchester, we are open once more.


We have a growing community of artists, song-writers, textile enthusiasts, local residents and cultural and community partners.

Our community groups are a great opportunity to meet other people to share stories and cultural traditions – and we are always looking for new members.


Our new museum includes a brand-new learning studio and educational gallery as well as complete restoration of our synagogue, providing the perfect hands-on environment for schools wishing to learn more about Jewish culture.

We are offering two half day workshops from September: Synagogue & Sabbath and Festivals & Feasts. These can also be booked together as one full day, giving your students the full Manchester Jewish Museum experience.
