Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum: Tolerance Center

At the end of the 19th century, this building had a dining room for the poor run by the Jewish community; it even functioned during the First World War. A professional Jewish theatre was established here in 1918; after 1930, a cinema was added to the building. In 1989, the building was transferred to the Museum of Vilnius Gaon, and in 2001 a division of this museum known as the Tolerance Center was opened here.

It houses a permanent exhibition entitled A rescued child of Lithuanian Jews talks about Shoah’; art, cultural, historical and Jewish events, conferences, film screenings, and discussions on topics relevant to society take place here.
