The Museum present the history of the Warsaw Ghetto and a selection of Jewish art.

The Museum of the Jewish Historical Institute is housed in the building of the Main Judaic Library, one of the few Jewish cultural sites preserved after the war, located inside the Warsaw Ghetto. The ŻIH building displays two permanent exhibitions, one on the history of the Warsaw Ghetto and the other a selection of Jewish art. The exhibition devoted to the history of the Warsaw Ghetto, accompanied by a film about the ghetto (37 minutes, in Polish, German, English or Hebrew) tells the story of the Jewish district from its inception to its total annihilation.
The exhibition of Jewish art includes religious and secular art - crafts, paintings, sculptures, and also includes elements of a restored synagogue from the early 19th century.
Next door, in the so-called ‘Błękitny Wieżowiec’, there are temporary thematic exhibitions. The building was erected on the site of the largest synagogue in Warsaw - the Great Synagogue (Wielka Synagoga), which was destroyed during World War II.
