We stood in line for quite a while on the last Saturday in December - always a busy time in New York City. It was well worth it. Besides the beautiful cultural and artistic treasures of the museum, we also had an opportunity to view an exhibit of the exquisite modern art paintings of Marc Chagall. Highly recommend this treasure anytime one visits New York City.

We were fortunate to visit during the Art Spiegelman and Marc Chagall shows. These are, to put it mildly, very different, but genuinely extraordinary shows. Run, don't walk!

We went to the museum to see the Speigleman comix exhibit. But realized that both it and the Chagall exhibit were well worth our time. Both exhibits were excellent.

Located on 5th Ave in museum row, this small, elegant museum houses an impressive collection. The recent Chagall exhibit was professionally displayed with contextual information and helpful wall text regarding each work.
Being a museum cafe junkie I was looking forward to a meal in the lower level Lox cafe. The variety, quality and price were excellent.

The permanent collection is interesting and relatively complete. Interesting for viewers with some knowledge of Jewish usages; but also understandable to anyone with little or no knowledge. Their special shows are usually extremely good and well put together. Only avoid the shop and cafe. Both disappointing.
