  • Museum dedicated for Jewish people from Cleveland Ohio. Lots of historical items to see and learn about. Parking is free. Museum is the building closest to road.
  • Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is excellent. I go to Holocaust, Jewish and Tolerance Museums in most cities I visit. This is among the best. While Cleveland is a focus of the museum, one never feels like it's the only topic. The stories are universal and does a very high level of story-telling and documenting stories of immigration, building community, tolerance and acceptance. Notable are the historical items, education offerings, involvement, current technology, and extremely professional and friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit!
  • What an incredible museum. Yes, it's filled with Jewish heritage, but the museum is SO much more! It's a really interesting history museum in its own right, and there is literally a little something for everyone! Worth a stop, you'll need about 1.5 hours and it is handicap accessible. Go and enjoy!
  • Many, many years ago I went here on a middle school field trip. We went through the museum and listened to two Holocaust survivors speak. I still can remember the experience, and how deeply impactful it was. As an adult, I’m now planning to bring my children here soon. It’s important we don’t forget.
  • Very nice museum containing Judaica, and historical displays of immigrants, war, hate, & love. There is a 2-part short movie narrated by Billie Grey about Jews in the entertainment industry back in the day.
