The objects, which are exhibited in the museum's display cases, form a separate part of the exhibition. Their role is to complete and to concretize the information presented on the display boards. But that is not their only value. Old objects, books, objects of everyday life, cloths, money and tools add some "taste" to the exhibition. Thanks to these objects visitors of the museum may feel themselves "inside" of the historical past and they can better understand the people who lived before and kept these objects in their hands.

Every shelf of the display cases is dedicated to specific topic. Typical religious objects which you would expect in any Jewish museum - a candleholder, objects used for prayer, and dishes for Kiddush - are situated close to objects of everyday and social life and instruments of different professions. Special attention is given to pictures, poems, musical notes, and vinyl records - creations of Jewish artists, writers and composers, whose achievements Bukovina is proud of.

In a separate display case there is a Torah scroll, which was donated to the museum. It is framed by a tallis - a white-blue shawl with fringes which is used for prayers.

Another part of the museum's exhibition is the interior composition "Inside traditional Jewish home". It is designed to create the feeling that the inhabitants of the house have just left the room and will be back in a moment to continue their preparation for the Shabbat. .
There is a table with dishes prepared for the Shabbat dinner. On the coat rack there are traditional Hasidic cloths: a black coat, a hat, a woman's headband, a child's kippah and a waistcoat for a teenager boy. There is a wall-clock with a pendulum in a wooden case, an old chandelier with a green lampshade...
The interior is completed by Sefirat HaOmer - a special calendar to count the days from Passover to Shavuot, and a prayer for the Austrian emperor Franz I written in Hebrew letters.
