The Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum is located on Changyang Road in the Hongkou district. The museum was founded in 1907 in theoriginal Ohel Moishe Synagogue. The Synagogue moved to its current site in 1927. The Ohel Moishe Synagogue which houses the museum is a three-story gray and red brick building that has been restored to itsoriginal state. The first floor is the prayer hall. The second and third floors show exhibits from the Jewish faith and a collection of donated items which were used by the residents of the Jewish quarter. These include wooden chairs, tobacco tins, a fan, electric iron and a Singer sewing machine. As an important part of Shanghai Jewish heritage, the museum also has a small gallery and introduction video about the history and life of the Jews in Shanghai.
