Was riveted by the exhibits in this jewel of a museum. No matter what your faith ( if any) you will find much to learn and ponder here. The emphasis is on surviving and has a very positive and sensitive approach. Do not miss the chance to go.

This little museum took us by surprise. I particularly liked its size - not overwhelming yet packed with exhibits. The Jewish Community in Tulsa numbers around 1500 people yet they managed to build this jewel and get it accredited as well. A wonderful mix of art, holocaust memorial section, and a floor focused on Jewish life and rituals. Beautiful ritual... More

I have been here several times before but never on a guided tour. I went this week on such a tour with a group of people and toured the Holocaust exhibit they have. The gentlemen leading the tour was very well versed on the subject, explained how we could use the exhibit on our own to read more about it,... More

For a relatively small museum it has a great collection of historical artifacts.and interesting costumes, beautiful stained glass, informative section on the Holocaust. The curators are friendly, helpful and well informed. A "must see" when in Tulsa..

The Sherwin Miller Museum is one of three museums in Tulsa that is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums--the largest and most prestigious museum association in North America.

This is another not to be missed museum. The first floor is dedicated to the Holocaust. It reminds us of how deep into darkness humanity can go if we let it. It reminds us of what can happen if evil is ignored and not confronted. Other countries just wanted to stay out of Germany's "business" because it didn't affect them.... More

This place is very interesting and enlightening. The first floor is an exhibit dedicated to the memory of the Holocaust. Lots of artifacts from that event are on display. The second floor had a retrospective of Jewish life as well as some things from various countries where the Jews have lived over the centuries. The only reason this place didn't... More

Had time to kill, so we visited the museum. Very easy to get through and interesting. It was well laid out, and for as small as it was had a wealth on information.

While the Sherwin Miller Museum itself tells the history of the Jewish Community of Oklahoma and Tulsa, a special section details the history of the Holocaust. It is important for all people to understand that Hitler did not start by gassing Jews; he started by bad-mouthing them, making them less than human and this is what isolation and bullying is...

We went to the Jewish Museum because all others were closed on Monday. This was a great option. The history on the Holecaust and the origens of the Jewish culture was impressive. Lots to see and read! Must go!
