Tykocin Synagogue

The Tykocin Synagogue was built in 1642 and was at the time a notorious Jewish intellectual centre. In the 18th century, a low tower serving as a prison was added to the northeast corner. Renovated in the 1840s, the synagogue was damaged a century later during the Second World War. Completely renovated in the 1970s, it has since been the headquarters of the Museum of Jewish Culture in Tykocin.
