Nice, small museum with changing special exhibits in addition to permanent exhibits. Lovely gift shop. Be sure to visit ancient mikveh next door. We ate at Attman's Deli when finished at the Jewish Museum and were not disappointed...long line, though. Check it out.

I have been to the Jewish Museum of MD on many occassions and have always found the exhibits there to be interesting and enjoyable. It may not be the biggest museum around (it has 2 exhibit halls / rooms), but they do a great job with what they have. Also, they have something most museums don't - 2 wonderful historic... More

We took the guided tour which lasted over a hour. We learned about the Jewish immigrants to Baltimore in the early and mid 1800's. We were able to go inside the 2 Synagogues and learned about their unique history.

One of the best Jewish Museums of Art and Culture in the world. Love the different exhibits, even the store is a hidden gem. What more can I say! Visit when in Baltimore!

We really enjoyed visiting this Museum. We had our young grandson with us so we only visited the special exhibit on the Civil War but thought it was excellent and were very glad we made the effort to go and will go again to see the rest of the museum.

We've enjoyed the Jewish Museum when we have visited - a great chronology of Jewish history particularly in Baltimore. Well worth a visit.

We went to this museum because my wife was interested in an exhibit on maj jong which was closing in a few days. They had that and much more--an hour long informative tour took us into two wonderful old synagogues. One in Greek Revival style, the Lloyd St. Synagogue, was built in 1845 and has the original stained glass windows--on... More

We saw the intact interiors of two old and elegant synagogues (one is the 3rd oldest in the United States), and the guide conveyed the history of these places - which is complex, fascinating, and a great window into the history of Jews in America more generally - by way of lively monologues in the voice of two 19th-century rabbis....

The two synagogues that make up the museum are interesting in and of themselves, but in addition the museum has special exhibits about Jewish history that extend beyond these facilities. When we visited, the special exhibits were about Jews in the Civil War and the history of the neighborhood in which the museum finds itself. The docent who took us... More

I have visited this Jewish Museum several times. The most recent visit was in December for a couple of lectures on the role of Jews in the Civil War and especially to tour their newest exhibit about Jews and the Civil War. The museum has two exhibits, one is constantly changing, and your entrance fee also includes a tour of... More
