20 Description

The synagogue in Barczewo was built in 1847. In 1937 the Jewish community sold it to a private buyer, thanks to which the building survived World War II. In the years 1941-1945 the building served as a Nazi prison. After the war the building was deserted and deteriorating for several years. In the years 1976-1978 it was completely overhauled, and became the seat of the Museum of Warmia and Mazury. Then in the years 1980-1996 it housed the Weaving Center of Warmia and Mazury. After yet another renovation, an art gallery moved into the building. 
The two-storey synagogue was built in the Neo-Classicist style. A characteristic feature is a façade divided by pilasters, with large round-headed window. The floor in the main prayer hall is covered with ceramic tiles. The women’s gallery, with a wooden banister, is supported by two pillars. Several tombstones from the destroyed Jewish cemetery were placed next to the synagogue.
