“A Small Art Museum With So Many Art Treasures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

The Mizel Msueum is a wonderful art museum dedicated to Jewish history and culture. I went to see the painting by David Sandum which is on display until the end of January 2014.

I was intrigued by the numerous exhibits with so many art treasures documenting Jewish life, history and culture throughout the ages and around the world. The displays are user friendly and explanatory. These art gems show how beautiful and vibrant Jewish art, history and culture are.

I especially enjoyed the display of art done by Israeli artists. It was unique and intriguing, especially the wooden sculpture of a heed and feet. There is also a wonderful collection of Torah scrolls, Seder table settings, menorahs, Dreidels and ordinary items such as jewelry boxes and cigarette cases. All are beautifully crafted and reflect the talent and passion of the artist who created it.

There is also a wonderful display of sculptures outside the museum.

This is a must see museum for everyone but especially those who live in Denver, You won't regret your visit.

“Very Good for Kids, Interesting Enough for Adults”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Small museum created out of a former school building from a nearby synagogue and located in a quiet suburban neighborhood. It's mostly focused on educating pre-Bar Mitzvah kids on Jewish history and the variety of countries from which Jewish people come and where they still (surprisingly) live. Filled with facts, artwork, and historical religious objects, the building also shows numerous videos about Jewish culture. Even for adults there is enough of interest if one is Jewish or just curious about the Jewish people. Of course, in no way does the Mizel compare to the Jewish Museum in New York or various Holocaust oriented museums around the world.

“I've never seen an art history museum like this. It's amazing and beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2011

If you are visiting Denver take the time to see the Mizel Museum's exhibit. I've been to museum's all over the world and never seen anything like this. It's unique, original, educational and inspiring. Everyone should see it - adults and children alike. There are messages in this exhibit that everyone can relate to and understand.
