Manchester Jewish Museum occupies the former Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue on Cheetham Hill Road in Manchester, England. It is a grade II* listed building.
The synagogue was completed in 1874 but the building became redundant through the migration of the Jewish population away from the Cheetham area further north to Prestwich and Whitefield.

It re-opened as a museum in March 1984 telling the story of the history of Jewish settlement in Manchester and its community over the last 200 years.

  • Sorry but I must review this place as I experienced it. I knew it was due to move to new location in July what I did not expect was to have to pay to be in the middle of a health and safety issue. Scaffolding on the floor of the synagogue. Nothing to buy. Exhibits have been removed or packed away... This place really should not be charging at the moment. And place signs around informing people of the health and safety issue.....In fact it should be closed now if only for the safety of the public.
  • Very interesting experience. A warm welcome and a knowledgeable guide. Good luck and all the best with the new project.
