This was a brilliant exhibition and well worth the $22 entrance fee. Exceeded my expectations. Different artists and their take on Leonard Cohen. Shame in one room with artists singing his songs everyone immediately got out their mobile phones. What's with people? Love it, love,...More

Right the now, the Leonard Cohen exhibit and musical experience is the very best. Recommend it for all ages. The museum, in general is very well designed and a size that makes it possible to understand at a deep level what is intended.

This is a great museum of Jewish History in an lovely, historic building. The Leonard Cohen exhibition is a fascinating and moving look at this famous poet and songwriter. The exhibit contains videos of his life and his music.

While the Museum's main collection is based on the Jewish faith, it also features temporary exhibits that make it more interesting. During my visit, there was this awesome Leonard Cohen exhibition, and that in itself was worth the visit.

The Jewish museum is a lovely heritage building so worth a visit for that alone. The Leonard Cohen exhibition leaves little room for the permanent exhibition but I was delighted by the many different ways that Cohen, his poetry and his music was presented. Different...More

Not knowing what to expect going in, the Leonard Cohen exhibit was a great (pleasant) surprise; When you enter into the main area you are treated to a one hour surround movie on his life - just be prepared to sit on bean bag chairs....More

Always interesting but now with a Leonard Cohen installation, sight and sound. Don't miss this jewel of a museum adjacent to 5th and Central Park.
