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

Situated in central Brussels, only a stone's throw from the Grand Sablon, this museum is dedicated to the lives and history of Belgium's Jewish populations since the 18th century.

Its 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.

The Jewish Museum of Belgium is closed for renovation works. Re-opening scheduled for 2017.
