“Average Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is a dated and average museum which did have however a series of great models of Jewish worship sites around the world.
This was the best part of the museum

brings the interesting history of the diaspora together and explains the ingathering of the Jewish people back to their homeland. the museum is well done, and curated impeccably. Try to follow a guide, they're great.

“Sad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Unfortunately, this museum is falling apart. We were very much looking forward to the exhibit on the diaspora, but the information was poorly displayed. We feel like we learned more about the diaspora from wikipedia than the museum. None of the interactive stations work. Best part was an amazing artist's sculpture, but unfortunately even the plaque explaining it was missing letters.
