This museum was very large and was very informative. The location is great and would recommend it. We always go early spend some time there and have lunch nearby then return so as not to miss much.

I thought I couldn't take one more musuem ... but something told me to venture in and I'm glad I did. The museum is laid out very well - start at the top and each floor down is a period of time. Well worth the trip and quite a bargain.

Predominately Jewish, but it pertains to every immigrant Nationality. America the beautiful, the land of opportunity, the ability to succeed and become anything you want to be. It is all experienced in this telling of family history.

Children and adults are fascinated by this museum, which serves to illustrate much of the history of Jews in America, through actual objects from the past, photographs and film, and current technology. We were part of a group which enjoyed the attention and detail provided by the delightful docent. There was so much to see that the several hours we spent there just whetted the appetite of all of us to go back and view much more. By all means, go and get a sense of the Jewish experience in this wonderful country.
