The Saint John Jewish Historical Museum opened its doors in July 1986. The museum has in many respects become the public face of the Jewish community in Saint John.  Its primary role is to collect, preserve and display the history of the Jewish community of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. Visitors are welcomed from around the world.  In addition to exhibits, the museum also has a research library and archives.

The Saint John Jewish Historical Museum has received awards from the American Association for State and Local History, The Church and Synagogue Library Association, and the Province of New Brunswick.
