Discover a museum in Brussels dedicated to the life and history of Jewish populations in Belgium since the 18th-century.

Located in a 19th-century town house, the museum exhibits collections illustrating the life, history and culture of Jews in Belgium.

These rich collections include ceremonial objects, works of art, a picture library with around 20,000 photos, over 5000 posters and a music collection.

The museum also has a library with almost 25,000 works and archives with over 3 million documents tracing Judaism in Belgium back to the 19th century.

Temporary exhibitions, conferences, guided tours and educational activities complete the Jewish Museum's cultural offer.

Don't miss the new exhibition room dedicated to the Shoah.
