The B’nai Israel Cultural Center was created with the goal to preserve the B’nai Israel Temple through the adaptive reuse of the building as a cultural heritage center.

The B’nai Israel Cultural Center is opening for tours on Wednesday, June 21, 2023. The B’nai Israel Cultural Center will be open every Wednesday-Friday, 11 AM – 3 PM during the months of June and July. It is free to visit the B’nai Center during regular summer hours. Tours will be self-guided, with staff available to answer questions.

The All Nations exhibition from the Butte Silver-Bow Archives is featured within the B’nai Israel Cultural Center. The exhibit discusses 17 different ethnic groups that were influential in the foundation of Butte. These groups are: the Irish, Hispanic, Italian, Greek, Serbian, Finnish, Cornish, Native American, Jewish, African American, Lebanese, German, Croatian and Slovenian, French, British Islander, Norwegian, and Chinese. A new exhibit on Butte’s African American community will open in July.
