I went to see the recent dress exhibit. A woman who died in the Holocaust and her dress designs were recently created. The stone garden is gorgeous. I also went back for a Singalong of Fiddler on the Roof. It was a lot of fun

100% worth it. Museum is outstandingly laid out. I have been twice and would go back again. In some ways it is even better than Holocaust Museum in DC. Really a fantastic, uncrowded museum in NYC.
