Manchester Jewish Museum


£6 full, £5 concessions, £4 children

We look forward to welcoming you to our new museum. We connect Jewish stories to the world and to our society, in order to explore both our differences and similarities, and to celebrate that which makes people unique and that which connects us all. We make connections to make things better.

We are open seven days a week and tickets for general admission are on sale now for timed entries. Pre-booking is highly recommended as we can’t guarantee entry for visitors who have not pre-booked. General admission tickets are available to book 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.

The museum will be closed on Friday 18 February.

Our brand-new gallery will take you on a journey through Manchester’s rich and diverse Jewish history, exploring universal themes of Journeys, Communities and Identities. It displays highlights from our “outstanding” collection of over 31,000 items including a selection oral history testimonies that bring the stories of Manchester Jewish migration, communities and people to life.

Our new Journeys Gallery includes a newly commissioned 4-screen immersive film produced by Heritage Interactive and directed by Dan Lusby. Watch an excerpt of the film below:

Our Café

Our new café serves a contemporary vegetarian kosher-style menu using local produce and authentic Jewish and vegetarian ingredients.
