I wasn't sure what to expect, but this was as professional and detailed a museum as you'd find anywhere. Great exhibits on the history of the Jewish community of Cleveland, and how it fits into the broader Jewish community, and the broader American community. I had two hours there, which wasn't enough. Small gift shop with some nice items. Friendly... More

What a magificant place to learn a large amount of history of the Jewish population in Cleveland. My favorite exhibit was " Violins of Hope" in the gallery to the left of the main hall. There were 19 violins which have survived the Holocaust and were referbished. Each were displaced in a case with 2-3 violins and behind the case... More

Having benefited greatly from our visits to the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC and the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned at this museum of Jewish heritage. The physical design of the museum, the use of multiple videos, the focus upon Cleveland and the creative, colorful presentations were very... More

Maltz Museum highlights Jewish history of Ohio and other regions. Great place to see different exhibits related to the Holocaust. Last week they showcased the Violins of the Holocaust.

The Maltz Museum is beautiful. There is so much to see about the history of Cleveland. Anyone who grew up in Cleveland will love it. There is a great room of the baseball history too. Al lot of factories and stores from downtown. It is a good idea to first watch the movie first of the T.V. shows etc. You... More

Really enjoyed the variety of media used to highlight the history of Jewish settlement in Cleveland area. The exhibit involves a lot of walking and standing and would benefit from some seating in larger areas.

As we had some time, we decided to visit this museum. It had a lot of information about the origins of the Jewish people in Cleveland, Ohio. It was quite interesting to find out how resilient these people were and successfully made a living with lots of sacrifice. Then it gave an overview of how the Jewish people survived over... More

We were at Blossom Music Festival for a concert and were looking for something to do on Sunday on the way home. Looked at Google Maps and found this 5 star gem. For those with in interest in Jewish history, Judaica, or just people, and culture, this is amazing. It is divided into a museum from the collection of Temple-Tifereth... More
