The museum is housed in the former Ohel Moshe Synagogue built in 1927. It memorializes the time when Shanghai gave refuge to all people fleeing Nazi Germany. Between 1937 and 1941, Shanghai gave sanctuary to around 25,000 Jewish refugees without visas.

The museum contains many cultural relics, scrolls and photographs of Jewish life in the city at the time. It contains a database with the names of Jewish refugees who lived in Shanghai.

Admission: 50 yuan
