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!

The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish art is a lovely museum dealing with Jewish history. It has some holocaust information, but it is much more than that. It has beautiful Jewish pieces such as Torah's, silver pieces, menorahs, Jewish writings, etc. It has a changing collection of art works by Jewish artists from all over the world. It is a... More

This is a small museum, but absolutely outstanding in the way it presents its artifacts and history. Compared to other Jewish museums, this one does a nice job of giving the public an overview of Jewish life and struggles over the last 200+ years. The cases are well-lit and presented in such a way as to not be overwhelming. You... More

This is an interesting museum. It is really not for real young children. Our young granddaughter found it a bit boring, but our 11 year old grandson was sort of interested. I have never really been to a Jewish museum, so I was interested in the things it offered. Quite interesting. I only takes a short time to go through.... More

just very impressed with the over all collection, the amount of information and the way it was presented. Dismayed at my own lack of knowledge! Actually slightly embarrassed at my lack of knowledge about Judah in general. Inted to go back and am even contacting them about volunteering there! Definitely recommend this as a must see.
