The Jewish Museum of Greece was founded in 1977, to collect, preserve, research and exhibit the material evidence of more than 2,300 years of Jewish life in Greece. At the heart of its mission, as an historical and ethnographic museum, lies the research and presentation of Jewish life and culture, of the history and tradition, of the timeless and multifaceted features of the Greek Jewish Communities.

The Collections and Archives of the JMG contain more than ten thousand artefacts pertaining to the domestic and religious life, as well as the history of the Greek Jews. Ιn 2001, the JMG initiated Holocaust Education in Greece and still works at the forefront of all relevant initiatives and actions. In close cooperation with the Greek Ministry of Education, Secretariat for Religion, the JMG pioneered effective programs for Holocaust Education, teacher training seminars and the creation of new content for schoolbooks.

Based on the Museum’s unique research and credible results, the JMG was declared a Research Center in 2014, by the Greek Parliament, while in 2020 the museum was certified/accredited by the Directorate of Modern Cultural Heritage.
