Jewish Museum of Switzerland
History and tradition
Basel
Switzerland
The Jewish Museum of Switzerland (Kornhausgasse 8) shows one of the best collections of Judaica in central Europe. It exhibits valuable items depicting religious and everyday life and aims to introduce the Jewish history of Basel and the region. Tombstones dating from the Middle Ages and contemporary documents, Hebrew books printed by the famous Basel printing houses and mementos of the Zionist Congresses enrich the collection.

In our gallery at Petersgraben 31 we are showing temporary exhibitions on cultural and art-historical topics.
