It is exciting and educational to visit the museum. The exhibits are done very well and can be nostalgic. It is a warm feeling to view one's heritage and recognize places and people that one has known.

I did not expect such an exceptional museum. The Maltz truly captures the history of Cleveland Jewry and it does so with a mix of memorabilia and testimony. The various short films are well made and augment the exhibits. A special experience!

This is a great museum even if you're not Jewish. A lot of artifacts and things to read. It's not huge but a good afternoon worth of things to see.

We spent about two hours seeing the permanent exhibit and the temporary one on the Dreyfus Affair. Both are very well done and very moving. The initial portion of the exhibit showed issues facing all immigrants and set the stage beautifully for the more specific Jewish experience. Highly recommended.

You DON'T have to be Jewish to appreciate this museum. Spent 4 hours here and learned an incredible amount about the Holocaust, Cleveland and the "cast of characters" with ties to Cleveland. It is done in such a way as to grab your attention and make you want to learn more. The permanent exhibit of temple belongings is by far... More

The Museum and its various exhibits are unique presentations of historical perspectives and it is something that one can only appreciate by going there - do so.

You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy this fascinating museum with a lovely collection of historic material and ceremonial items. Exhibitions vary and it is good to check if something new is on display.

A friend took us to see "Spots of Light," an extraordinary exhibit about the art, music and everyday experience of women in the Holocaust. Multiple screenings of photos and text are presented simultaneously on various walls of the exhibit room. The experience is close to overpowering. One is not dealing with "numbers" or "history." This is a record of individual... More

There was one section with "artifacts" which was interesting, then a big section of history that was ... ok.. kind of like reading a newspaper though, and the special exhibit was some modern art thing that was kind of bizarre. I'd wait for a more meaning special exhibit next time.
