  • Amazing museum! Please, please, please, take the time to add this to your schedule. My husband and I spent 5 hours here, and left only because my blood sugar dropped. Although the museum beautifully demonstrates the Jewish experience in America all Americans can see the story of their people in the exhibits. Especially considering the social conversations of immigration currently coursing through our country, this museum allows you a glimpse into the marginalization that all immigrants feel entering a new country. BRING TISSUES!!!
  • The best museums on Market Street! The museum has a good variety of topics surrounding the history of American Jewish culture, and is a very interesting visit. Excited for the Leonard Bernstein exhibition!
  • Learnt about Jews from beginning of united states till after civil war. Some exhibits well done. Others lacked detail. Worth going even if you think you know everything about Jews in united states
  • It's huge and will take a few hours. I went on a free day so very worth it. Some nice things were the houses of Jewish migrants and learning about different Jewish approaches to modern Jewish religion. I might not have gone if it wasn't free.
  • My daughter and I have been quite a few times. Visit twice in 2017-recommend highly for all nationalities, ethnicities & cultures. Family events throughout the year has always been packed with all things and information exclusively no matter childs age. History is history, whether my story, your story or our story. Top of echelon-must go see musuems, even if it is in between exhibits; which for the most part always been a plus each time we have visited.
