  • I have been to the Jewish Museum before, so I didn't miss seeing the other exhibits. However, only the Modigliani exhibit was open to the public this trip and it was enough! Despite his Italian name, ...  more »
  • The Jewish Museum is housed in an old mansion and the building still retains fine details of it’s origins. The exhibit open at time of my visit was just Modigliani’s art. But well worth seeing. I lear...  more »
  • We went for the Modigliani exhibit and all the permanent exhibits were closed. Disappointing. But the Modigliani exhibit was fabulous. A wonderful retrospective of his work and biography. Perfect.  more »

  • Wonderful museum. A must see. Great kids programs there as well
  • Fun on 1st and 3rd levels, somber and respectful mood on the 2nd (Holocaust). Would have liked to see a bit more on Biblical era Jewish history, but definitely learned quite a bit about the culture
  • This is a beautiful museum, staffed by friendly and helpful people. It was closed when we visited, but the staff allowed us to enter the synagogue to have a look around. I'm so grateful that they did, because the architecture was breathtaking.
  • The exhibits we saw -- Florine Stettheimer and Walter Benjamin Arcades -- were both outstanding, especially the Stettheimer one.
  • Can be very hit or miss. It's best to look closely at the exhibition showing as sometimes they are very small and lackluster. Even more so with the $15 admission.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
