“Very informative”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is a great museum even if you're not Jewish. A lot of artifacts and things to read. It's not huge but a good afternoon worth of things to see.

“Outstanding, accessible, moving”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

We spent about two hours seeing the permanent exhibit and the temporary one on the Dreyfus Affair. Both are very well done and very moving. The initial portion of the exhibit showed issues facing all immigrants and set the stage beautifully for the more specific Jewish experience. Highly recommended.

“One of THE best Jewish museums ever visited”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

You DON'T have to be Jewish to appreciate this museum. Spent 4 hours here and learned an incredible amount about the Holocaust, Cleveland and the "cast of characters" with ties to Cleveland. It is done in such a way as to grab your attention and make you want to learn more. The permanent exhibit of temple belongings is by far the most impressive collection I have seen. A new exhibit on Dreyfus will be coming soon. Make it a point to visit this museum.

Reviewed September 5, 2013

The Museum and its various exhibits are unique presentations of historical perspectives and it is something that one can only appreciate by going there - do so.
