The museum's permanent exhibition covers over 4,000 square meters and consists of eight galleries. The exhibition presents the history of Jews in Poland in chronological order, starting from the Middle Ages and ending with the present day. The exhibition features multimedia installations, interactive displays, and over a thousand artefacts.

The museum's core exhibition is divided into three main sections. The first section, called "Forest," presents the history of Jews in Poland from the Middle Ages until the beginning of the 18th century. The second section, called "Town," covers the period from the 18th century until the outbreak of World War II. The third section, called "Holocaust," is dedicated to the history of the Jewish community during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

One of the most striking exhibits in the museum is the replica of the roof of the wooden synagogue from Gwoździec. The synagogue was built in the 17th century and was destroyed during World War II. The replica was created using traditional techniques and is made of over 2000 hand-carved wooden elements.

The museum also has a temporary exhibition space, where various exhibitions related to Jewish history and culture are presented. The museum's educational offer includes workshops, lectures, and guided tours.

The museum's building was designed by Finnish architect Rainer Mahlamäki and Polish architect Ilkka Salo. The building's design was inspired by the Jewish concept of "tent," which symbolizes the temporary nature of life and the Jewish people's constant search for a home.

The museum has won numerous awards for its architecture and exhibitions, including the European Museum of the Year Award in 2016.

In addition to the permanent and temporary exhibitions, the museum also has a café, a bookstore, and a genealogy and history center.
