In this interactive museum devoted to the history of the Jewish people, the multimedia display portrays Jewish life by means of installations, 4D cinema, videos, audio recordings, and archive documents. The twelve themed pavilions are housed in the Bakhmetyevsky Garage, a Constructivist landmark built by Konstantin Melnikov and Vladimir Shukhov in 1927. But this museum, created on the initiative of the Federation of the Jewish Communities of Russia, is not only about the exhibits. It also serves as an educational resource hub with a large exposition, a Tolerance Centre, Avant-garde Centre, research facility, children's centre, and rooms for temporary exhibitions.
