Museums

 

There are dozens of Jewish museums in Europe, most of them opened since 1988. They range from small, private displays to Jewish community exhibits to large-scale national institutions. A number of them are located in former synagogue buildings; others are in new, purpose-built structures whose architecture itself makes a statement.

Jewish museums play an extremely important role in  highlighting Jewish heritage and history, carrying out research about sites and educating the public about Jewish heritage, culture and history.
