“Great Museum in downtown Philadelphia!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I am so intrigued by the Holocaust and this museum had a lot of information and pictures depicting life during that era. It was very sad but so informative. My 12 year old daughter and I went on a cold Sunday when there was nothing to do and she also enjoyed the visit. It was free for children 12 and under and $11 for adults. A great place to spend $11.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

We came here 1.5 hours before the museum closed, and that was just enough time to visit all the floors, including the Chasing Dreams exhibit. The Chasing Dreams exhibit was probably one of my favorites. Unlike a lot of museums, this one had a lot of interactive components - I am naturally curious, so it was a really good experience.

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

This beautiful and well laid out museum gives an extremely broad view of Jewish history in the U.S., both the good and the bad. Be prepared to spend a number of hours here and you still will not have time to see everything.

“Chasing Dreams and so much more!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Leave more than 2 hours to visit the museum... you need it! The organization of the exhibits is great. There are interactive things for the kids to do as well.
