I feel like time spent in NY is usually filled with hustle and bustle. I spent a quiet 2 hours here and felt like I had the place to myself. This museum is 3 floors full of Jewish history with the 2nd floor dedicated to The Holocaust. I am not Jewish and I learned quite a bit and gained much understanding. Keep in mind that entrance is free on Wednesdays from 4-8. I would not recommend this for young children.

This of course would not make the list of "fun" things to do in NYC, but if you are interested in history or Jewish history in particular, this is an important visit. Well presented in a modern building located at Battery Park. It was blistering hot the day we visited and it was good indoor relief from the weather.

The museum has outdone itself in clearly presenting materials over three floors, based on different historical periods. There is an array of films, videos and other interactive media that make the story line real, present and ever so humbling. It does not matter what religion of ethnic background each of us might have, the humanity of the presentation speaks for itself.

The permanent Holocaust exhibit is thematically arranged, and there is a sense that the peoples' lives that you are looking at and reading about are connected. Well, of course they are, but the museum has appeared to link the lives of the victims, to some effect.
It's free on Wednesdays after 4:00, which is when we went. Staff are caring and committed.
