“Learn about Jews in early America”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I am jewish and I learned so much that I never knew about Jewish people in early American history. I didn't know the role that Jewish people played in the colonial days. This is a place people of any relegion should come to and learn more about the Jewish people.

“Both Interesting and entertaining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Good combination of interesting and entertaining (lots of clips of Jewish actors and entertainers). Would recommend. However small cafe is a little on pricey side.

“Fantastic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Excellent presentation; It clearly shows the contribution made by Jewish people to the development of the United States in terms of fighting bigotry, participating as soldiers in every war, development of entertainment and everday aspects of making this a great country. Even the restaurant serves excellent snacks

“wonderful job!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

They truly worked hard to give you a fine snapshot of American Jewish life. The special exhibits were just okay, but the museum as a whole was special.
