  • Went to a convention there, big and fancy facility. Was at a gallery there also, nice art exhibitions. Has great restrooms if students of campus want a better experience 😜
  • Great museum with lots to see. Has a great art collection and a large judicia section. Great place to visit for a day. Best museum in the country. Very interesting and I would highly recommend going to check it out.
  • A fascinating museum. Information about the history of the Jewish people in all periods
  • After 30 years, undergoing a major renovation. So far wonderfully successful.
  • Good expositions and nice price too. You can see examples of many synagogues from many parts of the world.
