History

Women´s Gallery. Moreno Archive. IPCE.

In 1911 the Marquis of la Vega Inclán (1858-1942) was the chief of Tourism in Spain and he offered to create a Mudejar museum and a Hebrew Library inside Transito Synagogue. Despite the fact these pieces were owned by the Santa Cruz Museum in Toledo, the Synagogue received in 1915 some Hebrew inscriptions from the Jewish cemetery of Toledo.

Sephardic Museum was oficially created in 1964 and so as the collection was created at the same time, both from other Spanish museums and from private donors.

Since 1980 the museum acquires its own collection.
