This is really one of the best Jewish museums in the world, and I've been to many. They had an intense and comprehensive exhibit on the capture of Adolph Eichmann, the Nazi who carried out the mass extermination of six million Jews during World War II. I didn't realize how much work went into capturing the fugitive hiding out in... More

We went to see a special exhibit about the capture if Adolf Eichmann which was very well done. While there my 17 year old grandson was fascinated by the museum and when he saw Superman in one of the exhibits I had to take him to the Superman museum the next day

The Maltz museum has a substantial permanent exhibit on the history of the Jewish population of Cleveland. Even if you are not Jewish you will be treated to a history of Cleveland in the process with wonderful photos, artifacts and memorabilia. It's special exhibits rank along side large famous museums.

My brother took me here when I was visiting Cleveland. I found it to be informative and the Eichmann exhibit was quite interesting. was set up nicely. I would recommend this place we were there about an hour and a half.... cost was $12 for adults

See the Adolf Eichmann exhibit before it closes on July 24, 2016. A real must see. This museum is so informative with one beautiful exhibit after another. We did a drop-in tour with a docent, Rita, explaining the life and capture of Adolf Eichmann. Rita was wonderful and so knowledgeable. It was such an exceptional experience.

Took the kids to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage yesterday for the first time and saw the excellent exhibit "Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann", which will be there through July 24. Eichmann was one of the masterminds of the Holocaust who disappeared after WWII. This exhibit shows his capture and trial in addition to giving... More

Went with a friend who was living in Israel when Eichman was captured and brought to Tel Aviv, she was just a little girl then but she remembered all the excitement around her at that time. This exhibit was so well done and so interesting. There were many items to read and a few movies to sit down and watch.... More

The museum looks small from the outside but we spent 3 hours there and didn't see all of it. They have many different sections ranging from the Holocaust to the history of Jews in Ohio to Jews in entertainment. A definite must if you are in Cleveland.

What a fantastic exhibit. Hard to believe the artifacts that people save. The museum has put them together in a very comprehensive presentation which includes the artifacts; actual videos of Nazi activity and the Eichman trial. The rest of the museum is great too - we joined the museum which made admission free.
