Manchester Jewish Museum


Do you want to host events or away days in our breath-taking 150 year old synagogue? Or are you looking for a unique experience where you can explore Jewish culture and Manchester’s history?

Whether you’re planning a corporate gathering, a wedding reception, or a private celebration, our new corporate and private hire scheme offers exclusive use of our museum’s spaces for you and your guests to enjoy.

Following a £6m redevelopment and extension in 2019-21 our museum includes a modern gallery, vegetarian café, shop and learning studio with kitchen as well as a beautifully restored 1874 Spanish & Portuguese synagogue.

We held our NHEG launch event at MJM. All the staff were fantastic. The booking process was quick, easy, and the room was a blank canvas, allowing us to show videos and slides. Our speakers and supporters felt very well looked after with plenty of drinks and snacks, the highlight for most being the freshly made food. Comments were also made about the compostable/ recycled plates. We will use the room again!

We recently held our Volunteer Managers Forum at the Manchester Jewish Museum. The team were helpful and informative leading up to the event as well as on the day. The facilities available and the on-site catering support helped us to run a very successful event.
