  • Great to see a dedicated museum to Jewish history in America. Very nice facility and very well planned. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Wonderfully designed museum offering fun and informative displays for both adults and kids. One of the friendliest staffs I have ever met as well. Would highly recommend this museum.
  • Wonderful museum with a great collection of artifacts that tell the story of the Jewish-American experience. If you are a Smithsonian member make sure to mention it when you are ordering tickets, and make sure to bring your member card!
  • Nice museum, good historical view of the Jewish experience, good facility, small cafe (but did not go in), multi-level, good facilities.
