  • Great museum with cool exhibitions. It's free on Saturdays and you can wander trough central park to get there or after you are done
  • A charming museum focused on modern pieces by Jewish artists. The Isaac Mizrahi exhibit was stunning and far more enamoring than photos can capture. The gift shop also has a great selection of mezuzahs.
  • Great museum. One of my favorites. This is a museum that utilizes its space remarkably. The permanent exhibit never fails to capture me on the top floors. The current (temporary) exhibits always trail blazing and trendsetting. Loved the Andy Warhol exhibit. Saturdays are free but looking to become a member.
  • I love this little museum. I was able to visit on a Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, which meant that although the museum shop was closed, entrance was free. I got there just in time to see the "Unorthodox" exhibit the day before it left, and found it raw, powerful, and intriguing. The permanent exhibits are wonderful; I don't think I could find any other place where I could see more antiquities pertaining to Judaica unless I went to Israel. I could have spent all day here, and will definitely be back for another visit.
  • Beautiful building. Must be interested in the topics to get something out of the museum.
