Owner description: The Jewish Museum of New York offers acclaimed art exhibitions that explore art and culture from ancient to modern times. The Museum is located on New York's famed Museum Mile.

The museum has an excellent permanent exhibit that traces Jewish history up to the present day. It also has some excellent temporary exhibits, many of which would be of interest to people not interested in Jewish history, such as the current Chagall exhibit.
The museum is also worth visiting just to see the building that houses it, the former Warburg mansion.
The museum is on Museum Mile, so it is easy to combine with other nearby museums on Fifth Avenue, such as the Guggenheim, Museo del Barrio, Museum of the City of New York, and Cooper-Hewitt.

The displays are well thought out, however be prepared to figure the place out on your own. Apart from security almost no one speaks to see that you find your way around.

After having walked 50 blocks I finally arrived at the Jewish Museum. There was a special art exhibition on as well as the normal things you would expect in a museum. The staff on the entrance were very helpful - I would recommend this museum if you want to know more about the Jewish people, good exhibits - great place.

I liked everything but the lighting. It is often very difficult to read the little plaques that tell you what an artifact means or represents.
