Manchester Jewish Museum

Decorate A Box!
Creative Sundays



Manchester Jewish Museum's Learning Studio


Included in General Admission to the museum

Do you like to get creative? Are you looking for fun things to do with your friends or family? We’ve got you covered!

Every Sunday, as part of your visit to the museum, you are invited to take part in one of our free drop-in, self-guided, family-friendly sessions in our learning studio. Each month you will find a different self-guided activity inspired by our collection, where you can get creative using different arts and crafts.

This month’s session is inspired by “The World Needs Beautiful Things” by Leah Rachel Berkowitz, which tells the story of Bezalel and his box full of treasures. Drop in to our learning studio to decorate your own box, then explore our collection to see what beautiful things you would like to put inside it!
