  • If you are in Philly, please put this on your list. The museum is new and fresh with interactive exhibits that cover (of course) the Jewish experience - but is so much more than that. It is a history ...  more »

  • Very well thought out with a nice design and interesting methodology of displaying Jewish heritage and culture. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable, and they are always there to help explain to those that need clarification or have additional questions. The rotating exhibits are very educational and helpful, and bring light to many unknown or misunderstood aspects of Jewish life and history.
  • GORGEOUS interior space. The exterior is quite the looker too. I've only been here for special events but the museum has never disappointed. I've only heard great things about this place.
  • Amazing and well organized collection. Okay, so I went in with my Jewish In-Laws, but, I stayed almost 4 hours because it is amazingly well laid out and organized by time period and key events and figures. A very interesting way to look at US History through the eyes of the Jewish perspective.
  • Large and well thought out, with good insights for someone who has no Jewish heritage. The map of the exhibits had specific suggestions for what to see based on the amount of time you were planning to visit.
  • Great museum! Felt a little empty so maybe there are more exhibits coming soon. Overall a great place to learn about the history of Jewish people in America.
