About Jewish Museum

Founded in the year 1966, the Basel Jewish Museum has since collected a historical collection of Jewish religious significance and everyday life fragments. Over the years it has emerged as one of the notable tourist attractions in Basel. The Museum completed its 50 years in 2016 and added a display of select artefacts like the everyday objects, ceremonial objects, fabrics and a Torah ark from a former synagogue's prayer room in Solothurn.

The Jewish Museum should be visited since, for the first time, a sequential exhibition is introduced to shed light on the Jewish history of Basel and Switzerland. The Museum has preserved Hebrew books that were printed in the Basel printing house, essential documents from the two World Wars, tombstones from the Middle Ages among other materials from the past.
