Some history of the Jewish Museum & Tolerance Center
The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center was opened in 2012 in the building of the Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage, the monument of Constructivism designed by Konstantin Melnikov and Vladimir Shukhov.

Almost in a century the architectural masterpiece of the Russian Avant-Garde became the venue for the most high-technology museum of Russia.

Meeting the requirements of the modern culture and society, the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center represents a cultural and educational complex with its permanent exposition; here the exhibition, research, educational, children’s and Tolerance centers function as well.

The permanent exposition presents the history of Russia starting from the period of Catherine II the Great down to our days through the examples of the culture and everyday life of the Jewish people. Unlike many traditional historical museums the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center is interactive. Twelve themed halls designed by the leading company in the sphere of exhibition design — Ralph Appelbaum Associates — are equipped with panoramic cinemas, interactive screens, audiovisual installations created with the use of unique photo- and video-archives, documents and interviews. Major exhibitions introducing the main movements and names in fine arts are also held in the Museum. The catalogues from these exhibitions, exclusive art books, modern literature and souvenirs, designer jewelry and judaica can be found in the Museum Shop.

Thanks to different research activities, educational programs for children and grown-ups, large-scale exhibition projects, and a wide range of excursions the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center represents a multifunctional cultural institution opened for everyone.
