My wife and I thought we'd spend a couple of hours in the museum, but we were there for 5 hours and would have liked to stay for more. The entire museum is very well laid out (chronologically) and one moves seamlessly from one exhibit to another. The museum which focuses much more on the people than on the religion, chronicles the role of Jewish individuals and groups on the history of this country from pre-Revolutionary days through today.
There is a small cafe adjacent to the gift shop which is just fine for lunch.
