I hve been here once and really enjoyed this museum. Volunteers are here to answer questions and the space is easy to enjoy.

Worth seeing if you are Jewish but you will be disappointed. A collection which tries to do a lot but without focus.

The museum is laid out great to see the history and events that affected Jewish Life in the US and the world. There are also great pictures for famous individuals and entertainers. It has a gift shop as well. Wonderful way to spend part of the day.

It took 3 glorious hours to go top to bottom on a quiet and steamy Saturday afternoon. This isn't a holocaust museum. It is a museum that traces the history of Jews in the United States. We relearned things we had known and forgotten, and learned things anew. What a remarkable place, and an outstanding experience. Kudos to the creators and the curators.
