We found the Jewish Museum to be a grea introduction to the history of the Jews in Tucson. Who knew that the first Jews arrived there in 1860! Davia Cohen gave us a very comprehensive talk.

If you have a couple of hours in Tucson, you can't miss this opportunity. I took my 8th graders on a field trip to this beautifully done learning center. The docents were amazing! The exhibits were exceptional! Please don't miss out on this opportunity.
