The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center

The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center is a cultural and educational project that includes a historical exhibition, temporary exhibitions, an avant-garde center, space for holding public lectures, discussions and conferences, a 4D cinema, a center for tolerance and a children's center. This is a unique platform for open dialogue between people of different cultures, religions and worldviews. The museum is located under the roof of the Bakhmetyevsky garage, designed by K. Melnikov and V. Shukhov

Permanent Exhibition

The permanent exposition of the museum consists of 12 themed spaces each of which covers a certain period of the world and Russian history. Here, one can have rest at Fanconi, an Odessa café, to visit a local market, to study the biographies of Mikhail Romma, Gregory Zinoviev and other representatives of the Soviet politics and culture, to listen to kitchen talks and dissidents’ stories, to honor the memory of the fallen during the Great Patriotic War.

The static elements of the exposition will take on life once touched, and our assistants will answer any questions about the way museum exhibit items work.

So two threads of exposition can be singled out in the Museum, time is the core of each of them. One thread is dedicated to the linear time, history, the second one – to the time of traditions: a sphere of life and circle of Jewish holidays.

The historic thread includes seven blocks: IV–1794, 1795−1913, 1914−1921, 1922−1941, 1941−1945, 1946−1984, 1985 — our days. Analytical maps, Jewish Lives monitors telling the history in the persons as well as interactive installations hidden in the side naves behind the stands with the historic annals describe each of the epochs.

Museum building
The territory given by the Moscow Government was situated close to the already built by that time Moscow Jewish Community Center. It was the Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage, its main garage 8500 square meters in area was built in 1927 as per the design of Konstantin Melnikov, a great Russian constructivist architect, and Vladimir Shukhov, an engineer.
The garage got its name after the street on which it was situated, former Bakhmetevskaya street, now Obraztsova street. The community received it in January 2001, two years after the transportation facilities had moved out.
By that time the building was in a miserable condition, the roof was absent in some places, chaos prevailed inside, it was typical abandoned working space.
The situation set new tasks for the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia – to restore the building of the Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage and to fit the museum into the historic look of the monument of the Russian Constructivism.
