As we had some time, we decided to visit this museum. It had a lot of information about the origins of the Jewish people in Cleveland, Ohio. It was quite interesting to find out how resilient these people were and successfully made a living with lots of sacrifice. Then it gave an overview of how the Jewish people survived over... More

We were at Blossom Music Festival for a concert and were looking for something to do on Sunday on the way home. Looked at Google Maps and found this 5 star gem. For those with in interest in Jewish history, Judaica, or just people, and culture, this is amazing. It is divided into a museum from the collection of Temple-Tifereth... More

We have been to several traveling exhibits at The Maltz. One was on the first nuns to come to America. One on pop art with some really interesting mediums. One on the antisemitic tactics used by Germany prior and durung WWII.. They are always well exhibited and have guides on certain days and times.

Even though I am not Jewish, I have heard many positive reviews from friends that have gone to the Maltz Museum. In addition to famous Cleveland Jewish personalities, there is a moving Holocaust section, a religious section, what it was like to be an immigrant, an entertainers section, many videos, and to my surprise a large baseball players wing. I... More

There are a number of Jewish Museums around the country and we've been to a number of them. This museum stands out because of the clever integration of audio, video, and documentation to augment a surprisingly large collection. There are topics addressed that I had not seen before (i.e., this is the first time we had seen a discussion of... More

I have thoroughly enjoyed every visit I've made to the Maltz Museum and I am not Jewish. The regular collection is interesting, but the touring exhibitions make it a must place to visit. They've had everything from an exhibit about nuns in the US to Nazi propaganda and currently, one about baseball and how immigrants and minorities become "American" through... More

As many times as we've been to the area, we'd not taken the opportunity to visit this very interesting museum. There is a special exhibit of Jewish baseball players now and it too was interesting. There is also an additional wing devoted to the temple adjacent to the museum that was of great interest. Highly recommend this museum.

Have visited Maltz Museum alone, with a friend or two, and as part of a group with our own guide. Always learn something new, and especially appreciate the changing exhibits.

We came to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage expecting it to be like many of the other Museums of this gender we have visited around the country. We were presently supprised. There was an exhibit of Jewish and other minority Baseball players. Including along other items the transfer papers for Babe Ruth to the "NY team". Included was a... More

We weren't expecting much. but stopped in to check out the Dreyfus exhibit. Turned out to be very interesting. There is currently a Baseball exhibit that we hoped to get to but couldn't.
