  • This museum not only can give you an insight on Judaism, but has special exhibits. Also, a wonderful exhibit on the holocaut. 
  • A great way to spend a weekend afternoon. There are a lot of different exhibits. I thought it would be bigger on the inside but interesting overall.

  • Very informative, but too cost prohibitive for the general public to truly benefit. The Huntington family made the art museum free and they didn't even require their name carved into the side in stone.
  • Great exhibits! Came for the Violins of Hope, and explored a little in the permanent exhibits as well. Very nice collection, with the price of admission. Violins of Hope were very nice, with really touching stories. It is hard to see how little the world has changed and how quickly we forget what happens when we start seeing our fellow humans as "other."
  • The Maltz Museum is a museum that is very much needed. It serves a great memorial to the people of the Holocaust, and honestly I will never forget how I was impacted by what I experienced there. Warning: in one room, there are videos of the rescues from concentration camps and they are quite graphic. The museum isn't just holocaust specific, and the rest of the stuff is perhaps interesting to some, but not to me. Also, some of the gift shop kind of cheapens the experience. Great place to learn though. And it is active in the community.
  • museums are cool 😎
